Delicious Homemade Chicken Fingers

Do your kids survive on chicken fingers? Sometimes, I feel like that's all the kids eat. Well chicken fingers and pizza. One day, I decided that I needed to start making homemade chicken fingers for them. At least, this way, I knew what was going into their system. I have been told that these are delicious and the kids ask for them all the time. I make big batches and freeze for future use.


4 skinless chicken breasts, sliced into strips
1/2 cup Italian dressing
1 tbsp Italian seasoning
salt and pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients into a bowl. Season according to taste. Set aside for about 20-30 minutes.

2 cups of boxed pancake mix (the Complete one)
1 tbsp Italian seasoning
1 egg
1 gallon-size resealable bag
Canola oil

Combine pancake mix and Italian seasoning in the resealable bag. Beat egg in a small bowl. Dip chicken strips in egg first, then place inside bag. Shake until fully coated. 

Heat canola oil to about 350 degrees. Fry chicken for about 3-4 minutes on each side. Chicken should be golden brown on both sides. remove from pan and let drain on napkins. Serve with ketchup or honey mustard. Enjoy!

My kids love these. If you try out this recipe, please let me know how it turns out.
