Chicken Strips

In recent years one of the most popular finger foods has become chicken nuggets with the juvenile crowd while their parents like chicken strips.  Homemade chicken nuggets and chicken strips are ever so easy to make.  Homemade can be deep fried or oven baked.  The homemade versions are a lot healthier than the fast food version as well.

I used homemade shake & bake chicken coating to coat smaller boneless, skinless chicken breasts for chicken strips.  I left the chicken breasts whole as they were on the small size however, had I been making the strips for for the grandkids I likely would have cut the chicken breasts into thirds.  If turning into chicken nuggets I would have cubed the boneless, skinless chicken breasts into about 1 - inch cubes.  The homemade chicken coating works wonderfully well especially in the oven.  They are very good served with local honey for dipping.

Chicken strips are good served with a dipping sauce.  Make it easy choosing honey or a prepared barbeque sauce.  It makes for an easy, low fuss meal that even kids like :)

Hi Chey :) I've done chicken fingers both ways. Deep frying gives a bit different results but both are good.

Chicken strips are a favorite of ours, too. The new favorite dip around here is Thai Style Sweet Chili Sauce.
