Put a healthy spin on chicken fingers with this delicious recipe. The simple, sweet orange glaze for the chicken can be whipped up fast; marinating time is just 15 minutes and the marinade caramelizes deliciously on the grill. Serve this with a spinach salad and baked sweet potato wedges, tossed with herbs and olive oil. Chicken fingers aren’t just for kids!
