Homemade Chicken Fingers

These Homemade Chicken Fingers are crispy and tender!  Made with simple ingredients from your pantry, you can have these on the table in no time!


  • 5 chicken breasts
  • 1 cup buttermilk (enough to cover the chicken)
  • 2 cups crushed crackers (or bread crumbs, or cornflakes, or panko crumbs)
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
  • seasoning salt
  • pepper


  1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Lightly oil a baking sheet.
  3. Slice the chicken into strips, and marinate in buttermilk for at least 30 minutes, and up to 24 hours (the buttermilk makes the most unbelievably moist chicken ever!)
  4. In a ziplock bag crush the crackers (or whatever you are using), until fairly fine, then add parmesan.  You can use a rolling pin to do this.
  5. Transfer dry mix to a shallow dish or plate.
  6. Dredge your chicken in the crunchy mixture until well coated.
  7. Lay the chicken fingers out on the baking sheet.  Season with seasoning salt and pepper.
  8. Bake for 20-25 minutes, turning them halfway through.
