Super Simple Snacks; Fried Chicken Fingers
This is a great super easy recipe that can be made for multiple occasions and for many different types of people. They require some basic ingredients that can be found at any market. They can also be served with quite a few different types of dipping sauces or toppings that are sure to excite even the pickiest of taste buds.
For this recipe you will need an appropriate amount of boneless chicken breasts depending on how many you would like served. These need to be sliced into strips of varying sizes. You will also need 1 cup of corn flakes and 1 cup of bread crumbs. You will also need 1 teaspoon of Paprika, 1/2 teaspoon of onion powder, salt and pepper to your own taste, 1/2 cup of milk and you will be ready to go.
First preheat your oven to 375 degrees. While that is heating up, then take your cornflakes and breadcrumbs and combine them while smashing them. This can be done in several ways. One way is to put them in a sturdy zip lock bag, remove the air, and then smash them with a rolling pin. Another way is to put them in a blender or grinder and grind them up reasonably well. Next, add your spices to the breaded mixture. After that is complete put the milk into a shallow bowl and dip one strip into the milk, then dip the same strip into the breaded mixture. Repeat this step until each strip is thoroughly covered. Next, get an ungreased baking pan. Place the strips onto the pan and put into the oven for baking. You should probably bake them for approximately 50 minutes or until they are clearly browned and well done as you definitely don't want to eat uncooked chicken. That would be bad.
Once they are finished, remove the pan from the oven, and place them on a serving dish. Now it's time to choose either dips, or dressings to go with these. Some great suggestions for dipping sauces include ranch dressing, honey mustard (which can be bought or homemade--if you prefer home made see my fried cheese sticks article for more information on an easy to make honey mustard sauce), or my favorite...good old gravy. Remember, children often have picky taste buds, so good old fashion ketchup always works well with kids. Once you have selected one or more of these sauces or toppings, you can now serve them.
Now, it's time to enjoy this delicious finger food. mmmmmm
