Ultimate Chicken Fingers

This week I had a couple extra chicken breasts defrosted and needed to do something with them. So I decided to give the munchkins a special treat and make chicken fingers for dinner. I don’t know what magical property chicken fingers have – but it seems that every kid in the history of the universe will gobble them down. These are full of parmesan, seasoned well, juicy and delicious – even the adults at your dinner table will love them!

Start by slicing up some chicken breasts into strips. Slice across the breast on a diagonal into 1 inch strips. Salt and pepper the chicken.

Then we dredge the tenders in a little egg.

Shake off the excess and dump them in a bag full of baking mix, cheese, garlic salt, chili powder and paprika.

Lay the breaded chicken on a cookie sheet sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Then, drizzle with a little butter.

Bake until golden on the outside and a perfect 160° on the inside. Gorgeous!
