Chicken Fingers are one of my favorite weeknight meals because they are quick and easy to make. I adapted this recipe from the Bisquick website. We already love their Ultimate Chicken Fingers recipe, so we were anxious to give this recipe a try. The chicken fingers were fantastic! One of our favorites. We both really loved the spice blend on the chicken fingers. It reminded us of a buffalo chicken wing, but much easier to eat!
Spicy Chicken Fingers
- 1 cup Bisquick (I used Heart Healthy)
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1/2 tsp red pepper (add more or less depending on how spicy you want the chicken)
- 1 tsp chili powder
- 2 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp celery salt
- 2 tsp sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1 package chicken tenders (14 to 16 oz)
- Cooking spray
- Ranch dressing, if desired
Heat oven to 450°F. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper or foil.
In a pie plate, combine the Bisquick mix, onion powder, red pepper, chili powder, paprika, celery salt and sugar. Stir together until well mixed.
In medium bowl, mix egg and milk with whisk until well blended. Spoon 1 to 2 tablespoons egg mixture into the Bisquick mixture; stir until little lumps form.
Dip the chicken breast tenders into the egg mixture, then into the Bisquick mixture, then back into the egg mixture and finally back into the Bisquick mixture. Place on cookie sheet. Repeat with remaining chicken. Spray chicken with cooking spray.
Bake 12 to 14 minutes, turning halfway through bake time, until no longer pink in the center. Serve tenders with ranch dressing if desired.
