Healthy Diner-Style Chicken Fingers

(makes 3 servings)


  • 6 chicken tenders
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 Tbsp. dijon mustard
  • 3/4 C spelt flour (or whole wheat flour)
  • 1/8 C finely ground flaxseed (optional)
  • A few shakes each of salt and pepper


Preheat oven to 375.

1) In a small bowl, combine the egg and mustard. On a plate, mix the flour, flaxseed, and salt and pepper.

2) One by one, dredge the chicken tenders in the egg/mustard mixture, then in the flour mixture until fully coated (shake off any excess). Place the coated tenders on a cooking sprayed or nonstick baking sheet.
