Meat Fingers


(do not be scared – these are a healthy variation you can use different meat options)

This recipe can be used with chicken, turkey or pork strips!! Feedback confirms that picky kids dig these fingers! Moms dig these because they are NOT FRIED and lighter on the oil.

2 cup seasoned bread crumbs (see variation below)

1 lb. pork, chicken or turkey strips - about three times the size of regular “McNuggets”

3/4 cup pear juice

2 tbsp. olive oil

Bread crumbs: use 1 1⁄4 cup of today’s flour, 1⁄2 tsp sea salt, 2 tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp parsley, 1⁄2 tsp pepper. Dredge meat in crumb coating. Dip in juice. Dredge even more in crumb coating. Place on greased pan and brush with olive oil. Cook 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Turn meat over, brush bottom side with olive oil and cook another 15 minutes.
