Does any other person have chicken tender fixated kids? My youngsters love chicken tenders and would essentially eat them each day of the week given an opportunity. So trying to make them eat a more advantageous and progressively vegetable-stuffed option, I’ve been taking a shot at my own recipe for these Lentil and Veggie Pieces.
Heaps of veggie chunk recipes out there are made with squashed potato yet I chose to utilize red lentils rather as the base as they give much more sustenance. Red lentils are a superb source of dietary fiber and are also a great source of iron, protein and some B Nutrients.
To the lentils and vegetables, I also added a few breadcrumbs to help tie everything together (bread can be without gluten in the event that you like) and furthermore some ground cheddar for additional flavor.
I currently consistently have a cluster of these chunks in the cooler available for occupied days. They make an extraordinary lunch presented with some hacked carrot, cucumber and peppers as an afterthought. Or on the other hand for supper they taste flavorful with some custom made potato wedges and peas. Yum!
