Day 50, Oven Baked Chicken Fingers

After a late shopping day, I had to make something quick the kids would eat. Fortunately I can thaw chicken out fairly quickly.

Oven Baked Chicken Fingers

1 pound boneless skinless chicken
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1 tbsp garlic powder
pepper to taste, approx 1/2 tsp

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix bread crumbs, garlic powder and pepper. Place in a gallon sized sealable bag. Cut chicken into strips 1 inch thick; place in bag with bread crumbs. Shake bag until chicken is well coated. Place on a foil lined baking sheet. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Serve with dip of your choice.

Serves 4

I cut up a couple of apples and gave the kids carmel dip to go with those. Had I had some cucumbers I would have cut those up and given the kids some dippable veggies too. Tonight was a dipping night. The chicken we still had to use forks to eat them, but having them in strips allowed for less cooking time than they would have needed if they would have been whole.

Flavor Rating: Great, I like garlic but I wish I could have made them crispier.

Ease of Preparation: Easy, just shake and bake.
