Easy ‘n’ Healthy Chicken Fingers

Apparently I am on a three-ingredient kick.

First, it was my three ingredient pumpkin cheesecake mousse yesterday and now it’s three ingredient chicken fingers!

What can I say? I like things simple!

To begin, grab some raw chicken tenders.

You can usually find these alongside the chicken breast meat… and it’s typically cheaper! Win!

Then, grab two bowls. Crack a couple of eggs in one of the bowl and whisk away until you have bowl of yellowy egg goop (that’s what it’s called in the cooking world ;) ).

Fill the other bowl about a quarter of the way full with Italian breadcrumbs.

First dredge each chicken finger in the egg mixture before immediately rolling it in the Italian breadcrumbs. Completely coat the chicken tenders in the breadcrumbs before placing on a cookie sheet sprayed with cooking spray.

Serve the chicken fingers with your favorite dipping sauce (ketchup, BBQ sauce, honey mustard, etc.).

    do you have cooling racks for baked goods? put them on top of a cookie sheet and bake your chicken tenders on those. that way the bottoms get crispy too.

    Ahhh…omgosh Julie I made your pumpkin spice cookies last night and I 100% cannot stop eating them. They are so great and seriously super easy peasy to make. Thank you for the recipe! (my co-workers thank you also lol)

    I do the same and love them – but add a good deal of parmesan to the Italian bread crumb mixture. It’s the base for our chicken parmesan dinner.

    Hope everything came together for your new honeymoon plans!

    You can also do this with corn flakes that you’ve crushed in a food processor. I coat my chicken tenders in dijon mustard instead of egg. It’s really good!
