  • Want an at home diner experience? Serve these great chicken fingers with homemade french fries and onion rings. Make some chocolate shakes and you will think you are at Arnold’s Diner. Not something you want to do every day, but for a treat once in a while, it really hits the spot.
  • You can easily do whole chicken breasts like this too. To make them a bit faster to cook, I would slice the breasts across the middle into two thin slices of breast meat.
  • These chicken fingers make great appetizer finger food recipes too. Serve a pile of them on a platter surrounded by your favorite chicken dips, like blue cheese dip, ketchup or ranch salad dressing. Great for parties.
