Crunchy Corn Chicken Strips

December 15, 2011

I've challenged myself this Chanuka season to leave my frying pan where it belongs. Not because I'm on a diet or anything. Simply because my family will undoubtedly get their share of oily goodness from other sources, many other sources. Sources I cannot control.

And because I'm on a diet.

So I've come up with a great, kid-friendly recipe, everyone can enjoy. Little crunchy corn chicken fingers that won't leave grease stains on your white and blue Chanuka-themed napkins.

They are light, crunchy, tasty, and baked!

These schnitzel-wannabes won't take you long to make, and won't keep you chained to your stovetop. You can pair it with a colorful salad to round off your Chanuka meal, or pack them in your children's lunchboxes. (You'll totally get the hard-to-earn coolest mom award from your child.)

Best of all, you'll have more room for dessert desserts.

I wish you all a Happy Chanuka!

Enjoy your family gatherings, tap into the spirituality of the holiday, and be present amidst the craziness of the 8 days.

Have a beautiful holiday.

Crunchy Corn Chicken Fingers
