Chicken fingers for the kids!

I’ve never met a child who doesn’t LOVE chicken fingers. Problem is the store bought ones are expensive and who knows what’s in them! I found this great recipe via Babble and made a few modifications (my kids love these with ketchup and I prefer corn chips to Frito chips).

These are gluten free but you would never know it! We aren’t a gluten free household, I just find these taste as good or better that chicken fingers with breadcrumbs. They’re also so easy and fast to make!

Oven-Fried Chicken Fingers
serves 6

extra virgin olive oil, for greasing
6 c corn tortilla chips
salt and pepper
3 large eggs, at room temperature
1 1/2 lbs (750 g) chicken tenders

1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Lightly grease a baking sheet with olive oil. In a shallow bowl, combine the corn chips, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt and & 1/2 teaspoon pepper. In another shallow bowl, beat the eggs. Coat a chicken tender with the corn chip mixture, dip into the eggs, then coat again with the corn chip mixture; place on the baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining chicken. Bake until golden and cooked through, about 20 minutes.

Leave a message in the comments if you try these for dinner one night!

Bye for now,
