Baked Chicken Fingers - Finger Lickin' Good!

 ​We eat a lot of chicken at our house.  It's so versatile and oftentimes, depending on all you add to it, a healthy dish. 

I was very pleased with this yummy recipe.  I tweaked it just a bit.  I have followed Kelley's Miss Information blog for some time and find it full of... interesting INFO! =)

She not only shares great recipes, but simple household and craft ideas, like how to get rid of musty odors, or to make your own homemade ketchup...which she served alongside this tasty chicken dish. 

Please stop by and tell her I said hello.  You'll love what you find there. 


I want to suggest...if you don't have a rack to bake these fingers on, be sure to spray your foil with cooking spray (or use non stick foil), and bake a little longer to be sure they are crispy.

For best results, use a baking rack. Or you can broil them for a few minutes after baking to get that crispy texture you're looking for. 

Either way, these chicken fingers are wonderfully delicious! Your family will scream for more once they've tasted this tasty meal. 

BAKED CHICKEN FINGERS 

2-1/2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken tenderloins
(or cut up your own) 
1/2 c. (lite) mayonnaise
1/4 c. plain Greek yogurt 
1-1/2 c. panko crumbs 
(or plain breadcrumbs)
1-1/2 c. cornflake crumbs
1/2 c. grated parmesan
1 Tb. dry ranch dressing, optional
1 tsp. garlic pepper
(or half pepper, half garlic powder)
1/2 tsp. salt

Preheat oven to 375. For easier cleanup, line cookie sheet with foil. Place baking rack on top and spray with cooking spray. 

In a shallow dish, combine mayo and Greek yogurt. 

In another shallow dish (cake pans work nicely) place panko crumbs, cornflake crumbs, parmesan, ranch dressing and seasonings. Mix well. 

Place tenders into mayo/yogurt mix, cover smoothly, then dip in crumb mixture; place on rack to bake. 

Bake for 15 minutes, turn over and bake for another 15 minutes. 

Serve with ranch dressing or ketchup.
