Healthy Chicken Fingers

I love chicken fingers.  I have forever and I always want to order them when I go out.  I try to shy away from fried food most of the time, so that is why I was thrilled when I found this recipe.  It is SO good; just as good as fried chicken fingers, I think.  These are great on a salad, with a side, as chicken parm or by themselves with your favorite dipping sauce.  They are tasty and very easy to make.  I found the recipe on Pinterest originally, but I have included the main link at the bottom.

Ingredients:

* 1/4 cup parmesan cheese, grated
* 2 tablespoons dried Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
* 1/8 teaspoon paprika
* 1 teaspoon dried parsley
* 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
* 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
* 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (I have used smaller, chicken tenders and they work well) (about 1 pound)

**This is the original recipe I found, but I altered it by adding rosemary and oregano instead of parsley and paprika (I didn’t have those two ingredients stocked at my house!)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In resealable plastic bag, combine cheese, crumbs and all seasonings; shake well.

Transfer mixture to plate; dip each chicken breast in cheese mixture, turning to coat all sides (I put chicken in bag and did a shake’n’bake!  Worked great)

Arrange on nonstick baking sheet.

Bake until chicken is cooked through, 20-25 minutes.
