We don't do fried chicken largely for health reasons. But most fried things have egg in them, and a lot use dairy too. But sometimes you just want a little crunch on your chicken, right? I've been experimenting with a crispy chicken, and it seems to be going over well.
My son is all about chicken thighs with some light spice. Getting him to TRY (much less LIKE) any other cut of meat is not easy. But last night, I scored something of a victory. He's never had chicken nuggets, but if your kiddo prefers the smaller shape, there's no reason you can't cut the chicken into smaller bites before breading and cooking.
In our house, chicken is the meat of choice. My son prefers thighs; I prefer breast meat. This dinner seemed to be a good compromise because the meat stayed pretty moist. Plus, it's free of dairy, eggs, soy, nuts and gluten too.
My son is somewhat skeptical of ground meat, so I thought maybe meatballs would appeal to him because of the shape. It worked!
