Baked Crispy Italian Chicken Fingers

The other night I was craving chicken fingers, so I made these baked Italian chicken fingers with Italian and Panko bread crumbs. They are so crunchy and delicious! Lately I have been trying “quick and easy recipes” like this one because I get home from work around 7pm and I hate eating really late. It only took a few minutes to defrost some frozen chicken breasts, cut them into strips and toss them in the seasonings and into the oven. This recipe is really healthy because it contains NO OIL. I use an egg in place of vegetable oil. These would make a great lunch dish too, with a side of fries of course! If you have more time, a wonderful side would be these baked garlic fries. You can also try topping with a marinara sauce and fresh grated Parmesan cheese…yum!
