Oven Chicken Fingers Recipe

Oven Chicken Fingers are tender, golden strips of breaded chicken with two tempting sauces for dipping. The recipe comes from Mary Peterson of Charlestown, Rhode Island.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 1 cup Italian bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup water, divided
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup prepared mustard


  • 1. In a plastic bag, mix bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese; set aside. In a small bowl, combine garlic and oil. Flatten the chicken to 1/2-in. thickness; cut into 1-in.-wide strips. Dip strips in oil; coat with crumb mixture. Place on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 350° for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Meanwhile, combine the sugar and cornstarch in a saucepan. Add cranberries, orange juice and water; bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Cook and stir 2-3 minutes more, crushing the berries while stirring. For honey mustard sauce, dissolve cornstarch in 1 tablespoon water in a saucepan. Add honey, mustard and remaining water; bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Serve with chicken for dipping. Yield: 6 servings.

"I made these tonight, and love them, but think next time they would be better with something like marinara sauce for dipping. All the spices of the Italian bread crumbs (I used Panko crumbs) didn't go well with the sweetness of the honey mustard dip. But the chicken was good, I'll make these again."

"These come out perfectly cooked and are delicious! This recipe will definitely go in my binder and be made again and again :) (I added a little chili powder to the bread crumbs. I did not try the sauces this time.)"

"I must apologize, I didn't try the chicken recipe itself, but I did try the honey mustard. It was awsome. It was light on the stomach, giving it a picnic feel. My only suggestion is to add something with heat to give it a little kick."
