I love the flavor profile of everything bagels, so I recreated it with traditional breaded chicken fingers. Serve them with your favorite chicken finger dip. —Cynthia Gerken, Naples, Florida

Ingredients

  • 1 day-old everything bagel, torn
  • 1/2 cup panko (Japanese) bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 1 pound chicken tenderloins
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Directions

Preheat oven to 425°. Pulse torn bagel in a food processor until coarse crumbs form. Place 1/2 cup bagel crumbs in a shallow bowl; toss with panko, cheese and pepper flakes. (Save remaining bagel crumbs for another use.)
In a microwave-safe shallow bowl, microwave butter until melted. Sprinkle chicken with salt. Dip in warm butter, then coat with crumb mixture, patting to help adhere. Place on a greased rack in a 15x10x1-in. pan.
Bake until golden brown and chicken is no longer pink, 15-17 minutes. Yield: 4 servings.

Test Kitchen tips
  • One bagel will yield about 2 cups crumbs. The remaining crumbs would make a tasty topping for casseroles or used to bind meat loaves and meatballs.
  • For more impact, add dried minced onion and/or garlic powder to the crumb mixture.
  • Baking breaded foods on a rack allows the bottom to crisp up better. If you don't have a rack that will fit in your pan, you can also use a broiler pan with a rack.
