If you’re into easy, delicious and healthy chicken recipes that will please even the pickiest of eaters, these Almond Dijon Baked Chicken Fingers with Honey Mustard Aioli are going to be your new favorite weeknight meal.
I have to admit that I’m not the authority on all things easy, quick and accessible. I try to create recipes that anyone can make, but I’m of the opinion that anyone can make anything if they really want to. I believe in you! But, I know that for most people making beef bourguignon on a Tuesday isn’t realistic.
Long story short, I want to be here for you to create whatever kind of recipes you need. Today, I chose to share these healthy baked chicken tenders, next week I might upload my favorite no-knead rolls, or in a few days, I might share a recipe for homemade gummy bears. (Spoiler: I am.)
If you have any requests for specific kinds of recipes please leave a comment and I will do my best to satiate every appetite. Happy cooking!
