Parmesan Chicken Strips

 

There are many people today who cannot tolerate gluten or certain grains. It can be difficult to find substitutes for favorite foods, especially for children. Having worked in school food service and having two children of my own, I know how popular chicken strips are with kids. When I was on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet and couldn’t have grains of any kind, I was craving something breaded so I came up with this recipe. I can now tolerate grains again, but I still make these chicken strips for my family. My daughters are adults now, but still love chicken strips. They say they would rather eat these than the ones they can get at a restaurant. The coating is made with almond flour and parmesan cheese. Whether or not you have a gluten or grain sensitivity, these homemade chicken strips are still a healthier choice.
