This was very good. It was easy to prepare, tasted excellent and all the ingredients are easily obtained. I've made it twice-the first time according to the recipe, the second time, I did tweek it a bit. After taking it out of the marinade, I floured the chicken, rolled it in the batter and floured it again. This was the extra crispy version. I will make this for years to come, it was a big hit. Thanks so much for sharing this Rick.
Made the recipe but doubled because I used more chicken. Also, I only let the batter refrigerate for about an hour (only because I did not realize it had to and had no time!) The chicken "fingers" were delicious and will make again. However, we felt the batter needed some more seasoning (tasted sort of bland) so next time I will add pepper and some other spices when I prepare the batter. Overall great "finger" food!
I tried these after much prodding from the chef. I must say though, that they were fabulous. The only thing I did different was add a bit of Tabasco which is just a personal thing. I tend to be a little more critical of this chef, but these were fabulous and I'll be making them again.
