For finger-food lovers, chicken strips is one of those meals you just never outgrow. Traditionally, this deep fried favorite doesn’t exactly fit a clean eater’s healthy diet, but with a few tweaks you can enjoy it weekly as part of your muscle-building meal plan. We’ve ditched the flour batter for a slightly sweet and crunchy coating, then tossed them in the oven instead of oil. You’ll be getting tons of satisfying flavor, plus a muscle-building dose of lean protein and healthy fats at a low-carb cost. Pair them with a tangy slaw for the perfect post-workout meal!
