Good morning friends, or if you are on the east coast by this time it’s good afternoon, or really whenever you are reading this I hope you are having a good day. Man, I’m BEHIND today!
Mostly because I slept in till 815 am this morning. Yesterday our family left, which was a little sad but they will be back in a couple of weeks so it wasn’t too bad.
My nephew is two, and he is HYSTERICAL and darling, except when he starts screaming at 5 am every morning. Toddlers don’t have inside voices, they have one level of loud and louder. Don’t get me wrong, I still dream of a house full of children of our own someday, but for now, I’m going to enjoy the perks of not having any yet, like as much sleep as possible.
Speaking of my nephew, it was fun (once I had sufficient amounts of coffee) to try out new recipes and have him try them. Turns out in toddler land I’m a pretty good cook, who knew?
I mean almost all toddlers like chicken fingers, but he liked almost everything I fed him, which I considered a HUGE win! This recipe is based on my oven fried chicken drumsticks recipe, one of Mr. Hungry’s absolute FAVORITES.
I skipped the marinating step and they still came out great. When I made these I made a non-spicy version for my nephew and a spicy version for the adults, so I’ve included both below.
Both versions got demolished by the family and they loved how easy they were to whip up, it’s basically a homemade shake and bake version for chicken fingers! I have a feeling this one is going to become a regular on our meal rotation!
Alright, I’m out. Today on the agenda is getting all the normal blog, teaching, and client stuff done. Then, I’ve got a ton of work to do on a special project which I will be announcing next week. I can’t wait to tell you guys all about it, it’s going to be epic and perfect for those of you looking for a refresh come this January! Stay tuned!

These baked chicken tenders are crispy, full of flavor and SO easy to make! Dinner is ready in less than 30 minutes and everyone will be happy!
1. Preheat oven to 450F1. Preheat oven to 450F2. Add chicken tenders to a large ziplock bag. Combine 1 cup almond meal and seasonings in a small bag or bowl. Pour seasonings over chicken into the large bag. Seal the large bag shut and shake till all the chicken is well coated. Lightly shake off excess coating and place on a lightly sprayed parchment lined baking sheet. If you want crispier tenders you can set them on an oven-safe cooling rack. (I have done this in the past but usually, I skip it because it’s just something else to wash.)3. Lightly coat chicken with cooking spray. Bake at 450F for 25 minutes or until done, turning after 25 minutes.
