I will be posting the stuffed rolls recipe in a week or two - I want to get some photos together for a bread tutorial before I post that recipe. So this week I'm posting the Chicken Fingers. I got this recipe from my sister in law, and it is now my go to recipe for chicken fingers. I usually try to make half with a little tweak to see what difference it makes in flavor, pretty much like any recipe I try. You'll see a few optional substitutions and this is because I have tweaked it a bit - but don't worry I always tell you which I like best! I hope your family enjoys this as much as mine did.
First assemble ingredients for cracker coating - 1 cup Ritz crackers, crushed; 1/2 cup parmesan cheese (the stuff in the can); 1 Tbsp basil; 1 tsp season salt or 1/2 tsp garlic salt (I preferred the garlic salt) and 1/2 tsp pepper.
You can either mix in a food processor or by hand.
I used my hand blender. I got it for a wedding present and absolutely LOVE it - and can't believe I did not know what it was 5 years ago!
Once mixed, set aside.
Also measure out 1 cup flour and place in a wide container.
Dip cut chicken breasts in flour (not done in these photos but it does make them better!),
