Excellent! My family enjoys this recipe. Sometimes, in place of the bread crumbs I will use crushed saltines, or I'll use regular bread crumbs but add 1tsp garlic powder, 1/2 tsp. Basil, one half teaspoon smoked paprika, 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Anyway you make it, it's fantastic.

This was great! I made it with gluten-free bread crumbs and gluten-free flour. My family loved it, and my daughter who has issues with gluten was thrilled!

These chicken fingers have been a favorite of our family for years. I was a lunchroom director and increased this reciepe to make enough for 200 so we could serve them at school. We baked them for effeciency sake and they were great. No preservatives and really good.

These are the best, whenever I make them I have to make a double batch my family can never get enough. serve them with ranch dip and savory biscuit bites (recipe on this web site). Yummy!(edit to my review)I use Italian bread crumbs instead of plain, adds a little extra kick. Make sure your cooking oil is nice and hot and stays hot while you are cooking large batches to keep breading from falling off.
