We love making chicken fingers or sweet and sour chicken with tenderloins, but we're trying to eat healthier lately. Trying to avoid fried anything!

Any good ideas on how to prepare for lighter fare?

Marinate in plain yogurt, garlic, lemon and oregano then grill for some yummy greek chicken.

Similar process but tandoori spice in the yogurt for tandoori chicken.

Use cajun blackening, then grill and serve with a good buffalo sauce..that's one of my favorite ways.

I also like using korean barbeque sauce and making lettuce wraps.

There's a million things you can do with chicken..

SPrinkle (or pour if you like it spicy) Louisiana Hot Sauce on them and broil. Yum. Buffalo chicken wings without the wings.

Try a chicken cacciatore recipe, I like just about anything cooked in tomatoes. It's a simple dish that you can use with veggies of your choice.

Also, I like to use the dark meat of the chicken when making the cacciatore (boneless thighs), it's a lot more moist and tender.

i make chicken fingers---but baked!
some people in my family --who shall remain nameless (my husband) thinks it's too dry. but i completely dissagree! i think it tastes good, you still have that breading, but its not oily, greesy or heavy. then you dip in something nice---it's yummy
