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 chicken fingers taste awesome. Plus, it has the added bonus of being more healthy than most others, especially the deep fried variety. I thought this recipe was very flexible and forgiving with preparation, too. Finding myself low on buttermilk, I supplemented with milk and non-fat plain yogurt. This worked out great, and the coating was crunchy and tasty. Served this with Honey Mustard http://www.recipezaar.com/13228
This is a real winner! I've sent it to quite a few friends who all love it especially the kids. You can just dip the chicken in the buttermilk if you don't have time, but the longer you let the chicken sit in the buttermilk, the moister it stays.
We had bran flakes in the pantry, so that's what I used -- total success. Everyone loved them!
This is a great recipe and also very versatile. I used gluten-free cheese crackers and rice chex, as well as some gf breadcrumbs. I ended up baking the chicken strips for closer to 7 to 10 minutes a side. I used 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice in 1/2 cup milk instead of buttermilk.
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!
My family really enjoyed these. They dipped them in Anchor Bar Buffalo Wing Sauce and/or Light Ranch. They like the taste and I liked how much healthier they are than fast food!
THIS IS SO DAMN GOOD!!!!!! i love that the breading stays on the chicken and its not greasy, unlike doing it on the stove. and the flavors are amazing
