These are great with your favorite dipping sauce or in a yummy chicken parmesan sandwich. Be creative and have fun with cooking. Another benefit of these chicken fingers is that I know they are made from fresh wholesome ingredients.
"This baked version was a quick, super-easy and healthy alternative to our families usual fried chicken fingers. The coating was light and baked up crisp while the chicken remained juicy on the inside. The kids really loved them and although I thought they were somewhat bland on their own, they were quite tasty when served with our favorite dipping sauces. For my taste, I would spice up the seasoning just a bit...but, as I said, the kids really (and I mean really) loved them. Just don't overcook the fingers or chicken will dry out."- sgrishka

1.Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Add 1/8 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper to bread crumbs. Add oil and toss until crumbs are evenly coated. Spread crumbs on rimmed baking sheet and bake until golden brown and dry, about 25 minutes, stirring twice during baking time. Let cool to room temperature.
2. Cut Chicken into Finger sized strips.
3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place flour, eggs, and bread crumbs in separate pie plates or shallow dishes. Season flour with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper; season bread crumbs with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Add mustard to eggs and whisk to combine. Dredge 1 chicken strip in flour, shaking off excess, then coat with egg mixture, allowing excess to drip off. Coat all sides of chicken breast with bread crumbs, pressing gently so that crumbs adhere. Place on wire rack set over rimmed baking sheet. Repeat flouring and breading of remaining chicken breasts.
4. Bake until instant-read thermometer inserted into center of chicken (from top) registers 160 degrees, 10 to 15 minutes. Let rest 1 minutes on wire rack before serving.

mihir18 2 months agoreally good recipe and really easy to make.. it did take me more time to cover the chicken with the 3 layers but it tasted amazing. the only note is that this is not to be kept in a box for lunch like I did cuz the outer layer turned soggy in my lunch box, i recommend to eat this as soon as its made that way its nice and crispy.

Blaqmag1c 7 months agoI put my chicken a brine for 25 mins while the breadcrumbs where browning. Added chili and garlic powder to the mix. Voìla!
jimcathers 8 months agoi'm sorry but this recipe is amazing. I modified it by tenderizing the chicken breast with a meat tenderizing hammer before slicing it into 'fingers'. I think the other key is to properly toast the panko and to find the right salt/pepper balance (just look how the user images vary). This is the best revipe when done right. Thanks so much!

Rhoan74 10 months agoVery yummy! I use this as a template for many oven baked dishes, switching out binding agent or coating as situation dictates.
