Recipe: Oven Fried Italian Parmesan Chicken Fingers

This recipe for Oven Fried Italian Parmesan Chicken Fingers is a slight variation to the recipe I posted a couple of weeks ago for Oven Fried Chicken Fingers… these are quick and easy alternatives to those things you buy in the freezer section of the grocery store.

These chicken fingers are great for picnics and for watching the game… serve with tomato sauce for dipping.

What’s really terrific… it requires hardly any prep and if you use foil on your baking pan.. hardly any clean-up!


I always line my baking pan with non-stick foil…. this ensures the breading won’t stick and peel off.

I always spray the foil with olive oil cooking spray… AND… after laying the crumbed chicken pieces on the foil.. I give them a quick spray with the olive oil cooking spray. This gives just the bread crumbs a little amount of oil to moisten it… otherwise I find that since there is little fat in boneless skinless chicken, the breading would be dry.

This recipe will coat about 6-8 good sized chicken fingers.

I hope you try this!
