Red Zone Chicken Fingers

Chicken Finger Recipes

The Super Bowl is upon us once again and I always enjoy creating something new for Super Bowl weekend. This year was no exception as I decided to take on a classic pub fare and turn it into something a tad healthier while maintaining the classic taste we all have come to love with chicken fingers and their dipping sauces. This is a meal that the kids can also enjoy and you don't have to feel guilt when you give them seconds. A baking sheet is ideal to cook the fingers as well as using the proper seasoning, now the proper seasoning depends on your own taste buds, so mix and match for what your palate will enjoy. Seasoned bread crumbs work best for this recipe and the side depends on what you feel like enjoying  from sweet potato fries to carrot sticks. I decided to go with a sweet chili thai dipping sauce, something about that flavour just tickles my taste buds but good old plain ketchup works just as well. The Super Bowl is undecided but your choices of food does not have to be, enjoy the game and good food.
