Our kid and fat loss friendly healthy chicken tender recipe tastes just as good as they would if you ordered them in a restaurant and you can eat them a number of ways.

Healthy Chicken Tender Recipe 


  • Boneless chicken breast
  • Oat bran
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • Seasonings to achieve desired taste


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 and line a baking sheet with foil.
  2. Cut your chicken breast into desired sized nuggets and set aside.
  3. Pour oat bran and any desired seasonings into one bowl and the beaten eggs into another.
  4. Take each chicken strip and dip into the egg and then into the oat bran. Place each strip on the foil lined tray.
  5. Bake for about 20 minutes or until fully cooked.



How to eat your Healthy Chicken Tenders…

By themselves! 🙂  (Jackson approves)

With a dip:  Some good fat loss friendly dips you can use to dunk your chicken in are spicy mustard, buffalo or hot sauce, homemade ketchup, Walden Farms sugar free BBQ sauces, or Coach Blair’s Ranch Dip.

On a salad:  load up on fibrous veggies with a big mixing bowl salad (yes, we go big around here!) and top it off with your sliced chicken tenders!
