Chicken Fingers

Here comes another kid friendly finger food. Ideal for school lunches or any time at home. Chicken fingers makes a prefect lunch.


Chicken Breast                       4

Flour mixture

Flour                                     1 cup
Salt                                       1/2 tsp
Red chilli                               1/4 tsp

Egg mix

Egg                                        2
Salt                                        1/2 pinch

Bread Crumb Mixture

Bread crumbs                        1 1/2 cup
Salt                                        1/2 tsp
Red chlli                                 1/2 tsp

Oil for frying


Put flour, add in salt and chilli in a plate and mix well.
Beat the egg with salt and keep aside.
Mix bread crumbs, salt and chilli and keep them in a separate plate.
Cut chicken breast into fingers of desired size.
Make the assembly line in the sequence of flour mixture, followed by egg and then bread crumbs mix.
Coat the chicken pieces in flour. Dust the excess flour off by shaking it gently.
Dip in the egg mixture and then coat them in bread crumbs mix.
Put them on the baking sheet and refrigerate for 30-40 mins. Refrigeration helps the coating to stay on the chicken during frying.
Heat 1.5 inch oil in a frying pan on medium heat. Fry chicken pieces for 5-7 mins on each side until golden brown.

You can replace bread crumbs with panko, or even coarse corn meal for even crunchier texture.
