Super Crunchy Oven Baked Chicken FingersBy Traci Rhines

You will need:

1 pound boneless chicken (I use breast but thigh meat will work too)

1 egg

2 cups panko bread crumbs

1 1/2 Tbs. Dijon mustard

1 Tbsp. Mayonnaise

2 Tbsp. flour

2 Tbsp. butter

1 Tbsp. parsley flakes

Salt & pepper

Cooking spray


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly spray cooking pan with non stick spray.

2. In a sauce pan, melt butter. Add parsley flakes and panko breadcrumbs. Sautee until golden brown. Place in bowl and set aside. If using unseasoned bread crumbs, I recommend lightly seasoning the breadcrumbs with the seasoning of your choice. I used a Cajun seasoning.

3. In a bowl mix egg, mustard, mayonnaise, flour, salt and pepper. Place chicken in mixture one piece at a time, coat well. Using tongs, remove chicken and place it in breadcrumbs and coat well. Press down lightly to set crumbs onto chicken.

4. Place chicken on pan and bake for approximately 15 minutes (20 minutes for larger, thicker pieces). DO NOT OVERCOOK the chicken or it will become dry. I recommend turning them once so that they crisp and brown on both sides.

5. Serve with dipping sauce.
