It’s no big secret that my little man is obsessed with fries. Ever since he discovered it, he has fallen in love. Every time I ask him what he wants for lunch, he screams “French fry!!”  I don’t really like to fry food, so I usually bake if for him or make him potato straws. A three and a half year old can still be fulled by that, luckily.
Since he can be happy with that, I wanted to make him some chicken that he can be happy with as well. I’m pretty lucky with the food he eats because he eats veggies and soups and meats, but he is much picker now than he was just a year ago. He is picker even about his favorite dishes. The major issue with him is taking that first bite. If he doesn’t recognize what the food looks like, he will not eat it. If I can get him to try what’s in front of him, he is golden. So, if you have picky eaters, I would definitely recommend this homemade chicken fries. It’s pretty easy to make, delicious and wholesome!!

    These look amazing! If I leave out the bread crumbs, I can make it low carb. What a great idea! I remember getting chicken fries when I was kid… don’t remember where though. Thanks for yet another great idea!

    They look great!! I have an adult son with autism who is learning to cook, I’m going for healthier things he’ll like that are easy, too. Seems to fit the bill perfectly. I pinned it so we can have it when we’re ready. Thanks.

    My boys love anything “fry-like.” I am going to try to adapt this recipe for our allergies, and try it this weekend. Thank you so much for sharing.

    Can these be cooked and frozen safely for a quick pull out and microwave after a long day or easy lunch? Really like the idea they are made by me not a processing plant!!

      Hi Kim!
      I’m sure you can freeze them either before or after cooking. I’d recommend that you pop them in the oven to cook though, instead of microwave, only to keep them crispy. Microwave would make them soggy instead. If you freeze them before, you would bake them longer, of course.
