Homemade chicken fingers are crispy on the outside, so moist and tender on the inside. Quick and easy to make and so much better than purchased.

  • 2 large boneless, skinless, chicken breasts (575g) cut into chicken-tenders size pieces (6-8 pieces each breast)
  • 1 cup Panko Bread Crumbs
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 eggs large
  • salt and pepper to taste or my homemade chicken seasoning
  • vegetable oil for frying


  • Cut the chicken breasts into pieces. (about 6-8 pieces a breast)
  • Season the pieces with homemade chicken seasoning.
  • Beat the eggs and put them in a shallow flat container.
  • Put the breadcrumbs and flour in separate shallow containers.
  • Dredge each piece of seasoned chicken in the flour, then the egg, and lastly the bread crumbs. (this is called a 3 stage breading process)
  • Put about an inch of oil in a skillet and heat the oil to 350°F. Once the oil is hot, add the breaded chicken to the oil and fry until a Golden brown about 3-4 minutes. Turn over and Fry the other side another 3-4 minutes. If you have an instant read thermometer the interior of the chicken tender should be 170°F. Alternatively, you can fry in a deep fryer.
