Sweet and Sour Chicken Fingers

No need to dip these chicken fingers in sauce because it’s baked right into them!

2-3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 egg, beaten
1/3 cup sweet and sour sauce
2 cups panko breadcrumbs
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper

Cut the chicken into strips. Combine egg and sweet and sour sauce in a large bowl. Combine breadcrumbs, cheese, salt and pepper and spread out on a large plate. Dip strips into sauce, then coat with breadcrumb mixture. Place on a baking sheet with cooking spray and bake at 375F for 10-12 minutes until crispy, flipping them over halfway through.

The kids totally adored these strips! They taste great without dip, but the boys still dipped theirs in ketchup. I just liked them plain. You could do this recipe with whatever dip is your favourite. We like sweet and sour, but you could try honey-mustard, plum sauce, or any other sauce that you enjoy. I love panko breadcrumbs; they give the strips a perfect crispiness on the outside. If you haven’t made your own chicken strips before, you should definitely give it a try. They don’t take long at all and I think the taste is far superior to store-bought. Not to mention they’re cheaper and healthier!
