This is a recipe I created after trying several baked chicken finger recipes. I like this combination of seasonings, but it's always fun to try different things. You could use saltines, other crackers, other spices, etc!

These are better then any deep fried chicken fingers you'll find out there. A good substitution for butter milk is half cup milk + 1/2 Tablespoon vinegar OR lemon juice, (i prefer lemon juice) let sit for 10 mins. Used 1/2 cup crushed Ritz Cracker instead of corn flakes. I also added about a teaspoon of chipotle pepper to the seasoning mix for some nice heat. Very good.

These came out really good. But there is no way I would just bake them for 4 minutes a side. The chicken would be totally raw. I baked min for 25 minutes and they were small, thin chicken strips.

These turned out great and were so easy! I was missing a few ingredients so I used other's suggestions and made my own "buttermilk" using milk and vinegar. I also used panko crumbs, Parmesan cheese and the spices for all the breading. The baking time was about 25min. I was also having a chicken wing craving so at the end I basted a few of the strips with some hot sauce/melted butter/garlic for a bit of a buffalo wing flavor...craving fully satisfied!
