Crunchy Chicken Fingers

Here’s a recipe for a simple, economic yet healthy food your preschooler will just gobble down. Great if you are running out of time and lunchtime is looming, or when your fridge is running out of food!

It does need an oven though, although you can always fry the chicken with a pan in lieu of one. Baking is healthier – no grease.

Here goes:


  • one egg
  • a mid-sized pc of chicken breast, cut into strips
  • 1/4 cup of milk
  • a handful of chips (can sub with tortilla, Lays, taco chips, cornflakes even)


  • Beat egg
  • Add milk to egg and mix in a bowl
  • Put chips in a bag and whack until fine and then place in another bowl
  • Pre-heat oven for five minutes at 400F
  • Dip chicken into milk/egg mix and then coat with chips
  • Place onto baking tray with parchment paper (for easier cleaning) and bake for 10 minutes.

You can add a bit of salt into the mix to taste, but if you use presalted Lays chips etc, it should be enough.

Serve with ketchup or a dip. I served with a few slices of buttered bread to make up for the carbs Rae needs, and she TOTALLY cleaned her plate.

  1. Keep up the good work. Good read.

  2. I like this website very much so much superb info .

  3. First off I would like to say great blog! I had a
    quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your
    mind before writing. I have had a tough time clearing my thoughts in
    getting my thoughts out there. I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15
    minutes tend to be lost just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any ideas or tips? Cheers!
