Cajun-Style Chicken Fingers

READY IN: 20mins

These are so savory, really spicy too! If you don't like them so hot, you can cut down on the pepper in the recipe but that red pepper doesn't hurt that bad! ;)

These were so tasty. However, I used turkey breast instead of chicken, and I used flour for the breading instead of the breadcrumbs. The turkey breast turned out so moist and flavorful. We will be having these often! Made for ZWT5, the Saucy Senoritas!
