Baked Chicken Fingers

Submitted by: SRTINCHER

Introduction

I found this recipe on http://www.noraisinsonmyparade.com/2010/11
/baked-chicken-fingers.html and altered the seasonings to my own tastes. Be sure to use a wire rack over your cookie sheet to keep the panko from getting mushy. These baked chicken tenders turn out crisp and juicy - a great, healthy alternative to frying. The recipe is versatile and the seasonings in the panko can be altered so the tenders are italian, asian, etc.

    garlic powder
    crushed red pepper flakes
    or any other dried herb or spice you prefer

Tips
