Honey Chicken Fingers

Happy St. Patty’s Day! In respect of the holiday, I wanted to make a fun (but still healthy) meal.  I went with Toby’s Honey Chicken.

What you’ll need:

  • chicken 2 1/2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breasts cut into small strips
  • 2 1/2 cups panko bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 tbs apricot preserves or jam
  • 4 tbs raw sesame seeds

First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Then place the sesame seeds into a frying pan over medium heat and toast for 3 to 5 minutes (until seeds are golden brown). In a small bowl, combine honey and apricot preserves.  Next, brush this honey mixture onto both sides of the chicken strips, then dredge in bread crumbs and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Lastly, line the chicken on a baking sheet coated with nonstick cooking spray. Bake for 20 minutes on each side until slightly browned.

I ate my chicken fingers over an iceburg salad with honey mustard dressing.  I use a greek yogurt dressing from Martins (it’s delicious- and healthier).

 

Weekly challenge: I don’t have a meal plan, so its easy for me to drink lots of water throughout the week (as sodas can turn into an expensive habit).  Even if you do have a meal plan, try getting water with your meal instead of soda!

Have a delicious St. Patrick’s Day and weekend!
