Chicken fingers are one of the best foods to satisfy a fast food craving. They’re deep fried, crispy and have tons of dipping sauce. What if I told you that you could enjoy your beloved chicken fingers without the guilt? What if, the next time you want to zip out to a fast food restaurant, instead, you make a batch of home made chicken fingers that are even better than what you could’ve bought? The time and effort you would put into making the chicken fingers will make them taste even better. They’re so healthy, you can even include them as a regular Friday night snack or family meal on the weekly menu. No matter how you serve them up, food always tastes better when it’s home made.
