Finger Lickin’ Chicken Fingers From The Oven

This is a wonderful item to make if your are hosting a sleepoverĀ for your children and their friends or just a fun day outside and you want to “picnic” on the deck. Easy, tasty and fun to present. This will serve 12 kids.


  • 3 lbs. boneless chicken breast halves
  • 3/4 cup melted, unsalted butter
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 cups crushed cornflakes
  • liquid honey for drizzling

Put oven racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven and preheat to 425 degrees. Spray two cookie sheets with non-stick spray.

Placing the meat between plastic wrap, gently pound out with a rolling pin or meat pounder until about 1/3 inch thick. Just make sure they are even in depth and then cut into 1/2 inch wide strips lengthwise.

Mix together the butter and salt in a shallow bowl. Using one strip at a time, dip in the butter and then dredge in the cornflakes, pressing to adhere. Transfer to a cookie sheet.

After baking for 7 minutes, change the pans around in the oven (rack to rack) and bake for another 7-8 minutes.

Remove from the oven and cool to room temperature. The crust will become firmer as it cools. Drizzle with honey and place a few fingers in some parchment paper cones. Make the following sauce and let them dip in. You will be the mom of the day on this one.
