Baked Chicken Fingers
I have been searching for the perfect baked, breaded chicken recipe for years now. It seems like even when I would find one that was perfectly crunchy it wouldn’t get brown enough. Or if I would leave it in the oven until it was beautifully golden, the chicken would be dry and gross. Well y’all, I have found the perfect recipe!
Before breading these chicken fingers, you toast the panko breadcrumbs in some oil! Seriously, how did I not think of this before?! The chicken was perfectly crunchy and brown but still moist and delicious on the inside. My children loved these and they were inspired to write a song that went something like this: “Chicken fingers, chicken fingers, berk berk berk berk berk”.
This will definitely be my new go-to for baked chicken and I’m excited to play around and see how it turns out with some cheese mixed into the (cooled) breadcrumbs!
