Potato Chip Chicken Fingers

Bookmark and Share
My kids love chicken fingers.  It is usually what they order when we go out anywhere to dinner, no matter what type of restaurant we are at.  I purchase the frozen bagged variety to keep on hand at home for those quick-I-don't-know-what-to-cook-nights or for when I'm running out the door.  I have to admit though, I have never made my own chicken fingers.  This great recipe comes from my Family Fun Cookbook.

When my kids saw chicken and potato chips on the counter as ingredients they were quite intrigued.  My daughter even wanted to help me prepare dinner.  I love when I can hook them in before it is even cooked!  We even mixed up our own honey mustard dipping sauce. 

As anticipated, this meal was a big hit with the kids.  However, my husband and I enjoyed it as well.  I rate it a 4 spoons.

Note:  The recipe states to cook on a ungreased sheet but I had issues with my chicken sticking.  Next time I would either put a light coat of cooking spray down or use parchment paper.

Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce:
In a small bowl, mix 1/4 cup Dijon mustard, 1 tablespoon honey, and 1 tablespoon water with a fork until smooth.  (I have to tell you that it did have a tiny kick to it.  You might want to try adding a bit more honey)

2 tablespoons milk

1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  Cut the chicken into finger-size pieces. 
2. Fill a large, sealable plastic bag with the potato chips, seal the bag and crush the chips with the back of a wooden spoon.

  1. I've really been needing to changeup my chicken routine, and these look fun. I've also got a bag of Sweet Jalapeno potato chips sitting in my pantry, hmmm... :)

  2. Sara, I think they's be great with a flavored chip like that!

  3. Update: I tried out this recipe with those Jalapeno potato chips, and it was sooooo goooood! The boy absolutely loved it!
