Nutty Chicken Fingers

Recipe by jaynine

The almonds in the coating give this a delicious crunchy texture. This is a pretty quick, easy recipe. Serve with a choice of dipping sauces (bbq, honey, ranch).

Top Review by Gerry

Family rated this one top marks, all loved this delicious tasting chicken, especially me! Flavorful coating. This is one I would proudly serve to guests. Other then using parsley because I didn't have the cilantro, I made as posted with wonderful results. Teenager and his brother love this with plum sauce. Thank you jaynine for a recipe we all enjoyed.
