Healthy Superbowl Recipes: Sesame Chicken Fingers

Gameday is here and is almost always full of unhealthy choices, no matter how you’re spending the day. I don’t eat meat, but I have plenty of friends who would not be too happy with me if I didn’t serve some form of chicken during the Superbowl. This recipe is easy to duplicate depending on the size of your party and Sesame Chicken is a classic. And if you don’t eat meat either, you can always adapt this recipe to shrimp, tuna, or tofu! Fitness guru David Kirsch’s recipe to healthy-ify your Superbowl party:
