Next to chicken wings hubz loves his fried chicken, next to pizza I too love fried chicken! The kids are a mix of either loving fried chicken or just liking it, however all 4 love my fried chicken fingers!
For their birthdays I have always made whatever dinner they requested, amoung those requests was usually roast beef dinner lasagna and often, mom’s chicken fingers!
I’m happy to share my recipe with you today.
It yields enough for 6-7 people at approximately 3-4 fingers each, it is easily adjustable to half.
I use a deep fryer set to 375 degrees, I’m not sure how to fry in a pot but if you do I am sure these will turn out fine that way too.

You can make chicken fillets for sandwiches by slicing the breast in half ( so you have 2 thinner chicken breasts) and follow the recipe for the fingers, reduce the cooking time to 5 minutes.
We dip these into plain honey, sweet and sour sauce or my home made wing sauce, which you can find HERE.
We have made these for potlucks and beach picnics. All we do is make them the night before, place them in a tinfoil pan with tinfoil covering it, then into the fridge. Before heading to where we need to go we simply heat them up in the oven on 350 for 45 mins or so.
FRESH IS BEST but they are still good reheated. Leftovers are great for wraps.
Invite some friends over, make some fried chicken and share photos on social media using #NationalFriedChickenDay.

Fantastic chicken. We love fried chicken along with pizza. I used to have a deep fryer. Going to try the pan method. Have you ever tried panko crumbs? It is lighter, airier bread crumbs that absorbs less grease and stays crispier for longer than their traditional counterparts. Thanks for sharing at “Love Your Creativity.”
Never have tried panko. We buy panko shrimp frozen and its yummy. I do bread crumbs on my salmon.
