Yes, it’s another PEACH recipe!

Okay, I promise I do cook with other ingredients, but hey they’re about to be out of season……then I’ll be all about pumpkin!

I hope everyone is off to a Marvelous Monday so far!

The Marvelous in my Monday is:

  • Had a super fun shopping trip with my gorgeous girl this weekend and bought new shoes {That’s always marvelous, right?}

 

 

  • Toes and finger are pretty again. It always make me feel so much better after having a mani/pedi.
  •  I get to take Thursday off this week and take my other gorgeous girl back-to-school clothes shopping.
  • Last, but certainly not least I have not one, but two sensational recipes to share with you today.

 

 I used almond meal to bread my chicken fingers for the first time and it exceeded my expectations. The fam gave these tenders 5 thumbs up {dipped in ketchup, of course}.

The salad was made with barley, cucumber, peaches, and cherry tomatoes and was the perfect Summer salad to go alongside the chicken. Barley is a very healthy grain to add to your diet. If you’ve never tried it before; it’s very similiar to a larger grain of rice. Check out the nutritional stats here.

The sweet potato fries are Alexia brand. I love Alexia brand foods. They are mostly all natural and taste great. 

Let’s start things off with the chicken fingers.
 

Almond Meal Baked Chicken Tenders
 
Recipe Type: Entree
Author: Kim Lee @ hungryhealthygirl.com
Prep time: 8 mins
Cook time: 15 mins
Total time: 23 mins
Serves: 6
Healthy kid approved chicken tenders.
Ingredients
  • 1.25 lbs chicken tenders
  • 1/2 cup almond meal/flour
  • 1/2 cup seasoned panko bread crumbs (If you’re not using preseasoned, add 1 tsp of Italian Seasoning or other favorite seasoning.)
  • 3 tbsp parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 egg whites
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Cover a large baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray.
  3. Mix the first 5 ingredients in a shallow bowl.
  4. Put egg whites in a separate shallow bowl.
  5. Dip tenders into egg whites and then dredge them in the almond meal/bread crumb mixture and place on the baking sheet.
  6. Bake tenders for 10 minutes, then turn tenders over and cook for another 5 minutes. I turned the oven to high broil for the last couple of minutes to give a little crisp to them.
 

 The barley salad complimented the chicken very nicely. It could also be eaten as a side without the greens or with the greens as a light lunch.
