Oven Baked Cornflake Chicken
When it comes to baked chicken fingers, I’m all about the crunch, and nothing quite delivers quite like cornflakes! The cornflakes mean that you don’t have to deep fry the chicken to get that golden brown and crunchy coating.
The chicken is perfectly tender and succulent and each bite is deliciously crispy.
Kid Friendly Recipe
Often when making chicken fingers, the tenders are used, but for this recipe I chose to cut up breast meat instead. They are much more economical, plus they are larger in size so you get more, which is always a good thing!
You can easily serve two to four portions of baked chicken fingers from this recipe.
These chicken strips are so versatile and can be served as part of a main meal or finger food at a party. Serve with a salad and potato side dish for a great weeknight meal or serve with my creamy yogurt dip (recipe below!) as a great finger food to serve to guests.
Recipe Tips and Notes
- It’s best to bake the chicken fingers on a cooling rack placed over a baking tray. This helps the chicken fingers to get crispy all over.
- Spray the cooling rack with oil so that they don’t stick.
- When dredging the chicken, try to keep one hand dry and one wet so that it doesn’t get messy!
- Serve immediately out of the oven.
