I made chicken fingers!! They are easy, they’re delicious, and it’s possible to know that they are actually made of chicken instead of an odd, spongy material! Hooray! If you need a bite of childhood, cook these up. It is a surprisingly fast meal to prepare.
Start by slicing skinless chicken breasts lengthwise into half inch strips. Then, season some flour with salt, pepper, and any other spices you like. Toss the chicken strips in the flour so they are evenly coated.
Dip the chicken strips into a bowl with a scrambled egg, and let the excess egg drip off. Then, toss the chicken strips with more flour so they have a nice, even coating.
Heat about 6 tablespoons of vegetable oil in a skillet (or enough to cover the bottom) over medium-high heat until it sizzles when you put something (like a chicken strip) in it. Brown the chicken strips a few at a time. Once the chicken starts turning white around the top edges, flip the strips over and let them cook until the bottom sides brown.
When the strips are cooked, move them to a plate with paper towels to absorb any excess oil. Continue frying the rest of the strips.
Serve the chicken strips with a dipping sauce of your choice. We used a sweet chili sauce, and it was delicious. These strips would also be great over a salad or on a sandwich. I think you’ll be surprised by how easy they are to make. Enjoy this fun meal!
