With this recipe I wanted to walk down memory lane and replicate the oh so familiar flavours of my youth. Who doesn't remember their parents re-heating frozen chicken fingers after school? Hey you never heard a complaint from me, that's for sure. Now the grown up adult in me wanted to have a similar dinner one night but wanted to make a more "grown-up" homemade version of my childhood fav! Now if you're a parent please don't shy away from this recipe... Your kids will love it too! It will taste even better than the take-out ones that most of us are used to eating. Crunchy and much healthier I highly recommend this. Although I used pork for this you can always use old reliable chicken if you wish. Enjoy!

adapted from the "baked chicken fingers" recipe from the kaboose website

Serves 4

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Baking time: 17-20 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 4 skinless and boneless pork chops or chicken breasts
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 cup Italian style breadcrumbs
  • 2 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • freshly cracked black pepper

Honey mustard dipping sauce:

  • 2 tbsp liquid honey
  • 2 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1/2 tsp light soy sauce

Preheat the oven to 400 F and lightly spray a large baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray. Cut each pork chop or chicken breast lengthways into 4 strips or four equal portions. Place the strips into a bowl and lightly coat with vegetable oil.

In a separate bowl, combine the breadcrumbs, grated Parm, dried oregano, salt and pepper, and then pour it into a large plastic bag. Add in the pork or chicken strips, a few at a time, and give it a good shake. Place each breaded strip onto the prepared baking sheet and bake it in the oven for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, flip each strip over and bake it for an additional 5-10 minutes. It should be golden brown on the outside.

While it is baking start making the dipping sauce. Take a small bowl, and whisk together the sauce ingredients until combined. Once the strips have finished baking, serve it warm along side the sauce.
