Pecan Chicken Fingers
Instead of a flour coating, these chicken fingers are dredged in a spicy mixture of pecans and wheat germ. The nuts and wheat germ not only add a toasted, nutty flavor to the chicken, they also create a crust with extra crunch. These chicken fingers are high in fat and calories because of the pecans, but it's the heart-healthy type of fat. The serving size is 4 ounces instead of 6 because, in addition to the chicken, the pecans, wheat germ, and buttermilk all provide protein.
