Chicken fingers are one of my favorite dinners. They are easy to make and bake in no time. I also love the variety of flavors to coat them in. These Maple Cornflake Chicken Fingers are delicious! They are crunchy with a hint of sweetness from the maple syrup. Make sure you use real maple syrup and not pancake syrup.
The key to good chicken fingers is dipping the chicken tenders into flour before dipping them into the egg mixture. The egg grabs hold of the flour and allows the cornflake coating to stay on. We really enjoyed these chicken fingers. They are great served with some honey mustard for dipping.
