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.


* 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!)


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.
