I made this for my kids birthday two years ago and my step-dad still asks for it when he comes to visi.

These are, by far, the most delicious chicken fingers in the world. We've never bothered making the dipping sauce to go with them as they are so delicious all by themselves. I add some lime zest to the marinade instead, and have been known to simply roll the marinated chicken strips in the coconut/cashew mixture and just skip the egg and flour part, but they are delicious both ways!
