From Elizabeth Baird's Cook's Own 'Chicken' cookbook, 2006, a copy of which I received in a recent cookbook swap!

- Transfer chicken strips, one at a time, to cracker crumbs, patting crumbs all over the chicken strip.
- Arrange chicken strips in single layer on prepared baking sheet, & bake 15 minutes.
- Turn strips over & bake another 10 to 12 minutes more or until golden & no longer pink inside.
- FOR DIPPING SAUCE ~ While fingers are baking, In a small serving bowl, stir together ketchup, plum sauce & soy sauce.

I picked this recipe to use up some plum sauce from the Chinese restaurant. I really screwed it up, though, because I only had about 1 1/2 T left. So I tried to make up the difference with oyster sauce, which was a bad move. It made the dipping sauce way too salty. The chicken was really good, though. I served this with Roasted Green Beans.
Fantastic and healthy chicken fingers. I did not use mayo and used regular bread crumbs which I spiced up a bit with salt, pepper and paprika. The bread crumbs stuck to the chicken without having to dip the chicken in anything. The kids loved the sauce and left the ketchup bottle alone. I just know I will be making this often. Thanks for sharing! Made for Zaar Stars.
So easy to make and so crispy! I don't usually get that nice crunch with baked chicken fingers, but I used panko instead of crackers and they worked great. The plum sauce is yummy too. Thanks for sharing.
