LOVE ME CHICKEN TENDERS
Tucked away in Publika is Benbino by The BIG Group, a cosy café with a custombuilt playground wonderful for families and kids. Here they give us a recipe for their Love Me Chicken Tenders. We love that these are cooked in the oven instead of the deep fryer. And besides being easy to make, this healthy snack leaves minimal mess in the kitchen. It’s also a tasty source of protein for energetic little tykes!

Ask junior to crack the egg into a separate bowl and show them the right motion of light whisking. 5. Toss the chicken strips in the all-purpose flour and shake off any excess. 6.
