Fried Chicken Rings Are A Tasty Take On Classic Appetizers

Most of the time, I try to be a healthy eater, getting plenty of whole grains and omega-3s whenever possible.

Still, healthy isn’t the be-all and end-all of my world. Sometimes in life, you just have to let go and live a little!

That’s why I’m also a big believer in occasionally ignoring the vitamins and nutrition labels, and eating things that are just downright delicious!

For dessert, I’ll go for something decadent like these delectable cherry pie pops.

For a savory snack, on the other hand, I like to stick with classic appetizers that satisfy the craving for crunchy and salty food with a bit of a kick.

With that in mind, the experts in the LittleThings kitchen hit on the idea of combining two fan favorite snacks with a proven track record — chicken fingers and onion rings — into one delectable treat!
