Honey Mustard Chicken Fingers


I recently reconnected with a dear friend from high school on Facebook.  She sent me this recipe from The Neely's and told me that she made it into chicken fingers and really liked it.  I decided to give it a try and she was right!  These are quick and easy.  I really like the honey mustard in the egg mixture.  The honey gave the tenders a slight sweetness to help balance out the heat from the cayenne.  We had these for lunch with some sweet potato fries while we watched the Auburn bowl game (which we won three times!).

(Printable Recipe)

Olive oil nonstick cooking spray
1 large eggs, beaten
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon honey
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 cup panko bread crumbs
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
2 large boneless chicken breast

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.  In a pie plate or shallow bowl, whisk the egg, mustard, honey, cayenne, and salt and pepper, to taste, together until thoroughly combined.

Add the panko, salt and pepper, to taste, the paprika, cayenne, and garlic powder to another pie plate and whisk to combine.

Slice each chicken breast into 3-4 strips.  Dredge the chicken through the wet mixture, then the dry mixture, patting the breading on so it adheres. Arrange on a baking sheet, making sure there is ample space between each piece of chicken. Give the chicken a spritz of the olive cooking spray. This will help brown and crisp up the coating.

Bake at 400 for 15-18 minutes.  Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.

  6. Looking forward to trying this recipe at home later. The pictures really tell me they are yummy!

    Just a question, would it be ok if I use raw creamed honey for this?
