Homemade Chicken Fingers Recipe – Healthy Kid Friendly Recipes
You may want to think twice about buying frozen chicken fingers. I get asked from many clients “aren’t they almost the same as making my own?” and I also hear: “but it’s so quick and easy to just buy them and warm them up in the oven”.
Let me explain the differences and how making your own can be a much healthier alternative.
The cheap oils that are used like soy, canola and corn, sunflower and/or safflower oil are put through a process to extract the oil as well as deodorize and bleach (to remove odor and color). Often, hexane, a chemical byproduct of petroleum refining is used along with high heat to accomplish this. Leaving the oils void of nutrients is the least of our worries when we consider the toxicity we are exposing our children to.
Again fillers like starch, salt, additives and preservatives like MSG, are often added to improve taste and texture. If the frozen food contains anything derived from corn or soy, you can almost guarantee it comes from genetically modified seeds unless it is certified 100% organic.
With a little effort your children will enjoy a much healthier version of a favorite kid food.
