This recipe is super easy and super tasty. I follow the recipe exactly and always serve with homemade Honey Mustard. 1/4 cup mayo, 1 tblsp Yellow Mustard, 1 tblsp Honey and 1/2 tblsp lemon juice. I got the recipe off this site. I also always make them on my rectangular baking stone without foil. There is no problem with sticking this way.

I did everything according to recipe, but I did not care for the way it turned out. Tasted more like bisquik thank chicken fingers. I would definately not reccommend this to anyone looking for a crunchy restaraunt chicken finger recipe.

The first time I made this recipe I would have rated it only with one star. It ended up tasting just like Bisquick. But, I tried it a second time replacing the Bisquick with Italian seasoned bread crumbs and viola...there it was...a great tasting homemade chicken fingers dish. I omitted the salt, and added garlic powder and the paprika to my already seasoned bread crumbs. The kids loved them and I will definitely be making these again with my alterations.

These were great! Quick to make and the family loved them. I used Garlic Salt rather than regular and also used the butter as directed. They had great flavor and I was pleased with how the breading turned out. Let's be honest - they're not deep fried, so you're not going to get that thick, hard crunchy breading. But this was a very close oven baked copy. We'll be making these again.

The chicken fingers were easy and tasty. I didn't have a large ziploc bag so I just used a bowl instead. Also, when you flip these chicken fingers half-way through baking, they tend to stick to the tin foil. That was the only negative.

Followed the recipe except used olive oil instead of the margarine. Tasty and less fattening than the traditional. Would make again.

Tastes great, easy and fast to make. I had to increase cook time to 20 minutes, they were cooked but not dry. I think if you try to flip the chicken too soon, that might cause the breading to fall off or stick to the pan. But if you use foil and spray, and wait about 10 minutes before turning, I think the breading stays on better that way.

I had these ingredients on hand and thought I'd try it. So glad I did. Crispy, delicious coating! Family enjoyed it very much. I love chicken fingers when I go out to eat. Now I think these are better than the deep-fried versions in restaurants. My tip would be to put only 3 strips at a time in the bag when coating. Add more garlic powder if you enjoy the flavor of garlic. Onion powder would probably be great too in addition to the garlic powder.
