How to Make Chicken Finger and French Fry Meal Prep

The secret to flavorful and moist chicken fingers is to let your chicken marinate in seasonings before adding a well-spiced breading. We used garlic, mustard, thyme, and cayenne, which makes for a super flavorful blend with just a touch of heat. This paleo chicken finger meal prep uses high-protein almond flour and coconut flakes for extra crunch.

And if you’re a ranch lover, don’t skip the dip; we’ve been told this dairy-free version is “better than ranch dressing.” Make some extra to have on hand throughout the week for last-minute salads, sandwiches, or wraps. One taste and this easy meal prep is going to be a new favorite in your rotation! (The chicken will freeze great, too! There's something to be said for making double batches....)

How to Store and Serve Chicken Fingers and French Fry Meal Prep

Once this has been prepped and transferred to airtight containers, store these meals in the fridge for up to 4 or 5 days. Reheat in the microwave if desired or, better yet, in a 350 F oven on a baking sheet, tented loosely with foil so everything doesn't dry out!

Serve it just like this, with the ranch dressing on the side. We like this either some steamed broccoli or a big Caesar salad.

Freeze any chicken you want. Wrap it tightly and date and label it. The chicken will keep in the freezer for up to 3 months. Defrost in the fridge and then reheat, or cook it right from frozen, in the oven, for about 20-25 minutes at 350F.
