These chicken fingers were really good. They are everything you love about Cheetos, but without the orange fingers! I used Baked Cheetos, because that is what I had in the pantry. I think these would be even better with regular Cheetos. This was a fun dish. I think kids would really love this - who doesn't want to eat Cheetos for dinner?!
Cheetos Chicken Fingers
- 3 oz Cheetos (you want about 1 cup of crumbs)
- 1/2 tsp black pepper or 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
- 1 lb raw chicken tenders
- 1/3 cup honey mustard dressing (I used Light)
- cooking spray
Put rack in lower third of oven; preheat to 475°F. Line a baking pan with nonstick aluminum foil.
Pulse Cheetos in a food processor. Transfer to a bowl; stir in pepper. Toss tenders in honey mustard dressing, then dredge in crumbs. Arrange on pan. Spray tenders with cooking spray.
Bake, turning once, until golden brown, 15 minutes.
