We all love chicken tenders. Often found on the children’s menu, they’re perfectly suitable and delicious for adults as well. Chicken tenders are deliciously juicy and crisp, making them the best guilty pleasure you can get at any restaurant, especially with a side of honey mustard!
Even though the chicken tenders are the treat we hate ourselves for eating, what if there was a way to make them without the hassle of leaving home and without any of the guilt? This recipe for baked chicken fingers will give you exactly that, allowing you to eat them whenever you would like without ever having to get out of your pajamas!
Because this recipe features baking instead of frying, you cut out tons of excess fat and calories. The breadcrumbs are already baked, which ensures that they’ll be crispy even though they’re baked onto the chicken instead of fried. Another nice touch is that there is mustard in the dipping batter, which ensures that there is extra moisture and flavor in the chicken even though it is baked.
This helps to make the honey mustard in this recipe complement the chicken that much better, which is also healthy for you as well! The flavor combination used of mustard, mayonnaise, and honey help to make the best dipping sauce, which is healthier than per-packaged sauce since you made it at home, without any artificial flavors!
