Low-Fat Yogurt Chicken Fingers

"I saw this recipe on "Cooking Thin" and had to try it...SO easy. Below is the basic recipe, but I like to add parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning to the breadcrumbs and serve with marinara sauce to dip. So much better than greasy fried chicken fingers!"

  1. I am appalled that this recipe is labeled "low fat" at over 700 calories per serving and 6.8 grams of saturated fat it is no way "Low Fat". This is shameful.
  2. Really yummy and wicked easy! Love itt!
  3. Oh my goodness - the BEST oven fried chicken I have ever had! My DH loves fried chicken so I've tried every oven recipe there is to get him to like a healthier version - this one wins! I only added a little salt & pepper to the breadcrumbs and followed the recipe exactly. We loved it and I've already been asked to make it again. Thanks for sharing this great keeper!
  4. Very simple to make. I added some garlic salt and onion powder to the yogurt. The chicken was very moist. Thanks for posting such a quick and easy recipe. Made for I Recommend Tag Game.
  5. Wow, a fabulous, tender, totally delicious oven baked chicken "fingers". I only had drumsticks, but I used the same method and only added some paprika and a couple of drops of Tabasco sauce to the yogurt. The breadcrumbs were of the Italian breadcrumb variety, so this really made it easy and a nice crumb coating. I increased the length of time to bake, (drumsticks=40 minutes) and was really great to enjoy on a Spring afternoon on the farm. I will use this method from now on, possibly upping the Tabasco sauce and maybe the addition of garlic powder too. Thanks, Gidge! This was terrific! Made for *Healthy Choices* game May 2008.
