The oven baked crispy chicken fingers

The previous week has been a hectic one for me. Lots to do at work and getting ready for Christmas with lots of shopping. Furthermore, I've attended a short course at William Angliss Institute last Saturday and Sunday and it was eye-opening experience for me. I'm now anxiously monitoring the 2011 classes update as their courses sell out very quickly... 

These oven baked chicken finger were made yesterday after I returned from the course.

Like most kids, my son loves fried chicken.  I didn't want to give him fried chicken all the time and so I made these oven baked crispy chicken fingers but my fussy kid still prefer his fried chicken...

Oh well...I like these healthier version of crispy chicken anyway. 

Great to serve with sweet chili mayonnaise
Yummy dip...
Enjoy!
My healthier version of oven baked crispy chicken fingers
serve 2-3
1. Marinate 400g chicken strips with 1 tbsp sweet chili sauce overnight in the fridge.
2. Preheat oven to 200°C or 180°C (fan forced). Line oven trays with baking paper
3. Dry the excess liquid of the chicken strips with paper towels. Coat the chicken strips with cornflour and dust off the excess. Dip the chicken into about 50ml of milk and coat the chicken with 1 cup of wholemeal breadcrumb mixed with 30g of grated Parmesan cheese and 1/4 tsp of freshly ground pepper.
4. Bake for 30 minutes. Serve with mayonnaise and sweet chili sauce.

Happy Baking

  3. Thanks Sandra for your compliments.

    Grub: I attended the cupcake decorating course. This is my 1st time attending the William Angliss Course and I would say that the topic they covered is pretty basic but good to know the industry practices of making cupcakes :D
