Fried Chicken Fingers

Fried Chicken fingers

This recipe usually prepared with chicken tenders or skin on bone in chicken pieces, and I often make the dish that way. But this time I prepared the dish with chicken breast pieces.I am really satisfied with the end result.

This recipe is ready and on the table in 45 mins. Made with Chicken breast pieces, dried mixed herbs, garlic, yogurt. This fun, guilty pleasure chicken breast recipe is a definite favourite.

This is one that I can make when I need an easy to make a starter for a get together with a small group of friends, or I need a  simple weeknight dinner with some side salad. This Fried chicken fingers recipe is also great to serve for lunch.

There are days when I really don’t feel to cook an elaborate meal, I always keep some cooked Dal and Rice in my refrigerator for my 4-year picky eater. Dal, Rice, and Bhaja ( Fish/ Chicken / Vegetable Fry) and sliced onion and cucumber will do a great job to make a Bong (Bengali)Soul happy.
However you serve it, I taste delicious! I hope you love this as much as I did! If you recreate this do share with me on social media.
