Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: North American
Serves: 16 to 18 pieces
  • 6 chicken breasts or 2.5 lbs (cut into 3 pieces length wise each)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp fresh ground black pepper
  • 1.5 tsp chilly powder
  • 1.5 tsp garlic powder
  • 1.5 cups Hellmann's Mayonnaise (They aren't paying me to mention them)
  • 1.5 cups Italian style bread crumbs
  • ½ cup parmesan
  • 4 to 6 Wedges of lemon for serving with the meal
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 400 ºF and cover a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In one small medium bowl, add the mayo. In another medium bowl, add the breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese and mix well.
  3. Cut each chicken breast into two or three long pieces depending on the size of the chicken breast. These should be about the size of store bought chicken fingers.
  4. Sprinkle the salt, ground pepper, chilli powder and garlic powder evenly over all the pieces of chicken.
  5. With your fingers, pat down the spices on the chicken.
  6. Now pickup one piece of chicken at-a-time and first coat the chicken with the mayo in the first bowl and then place the chicken in the second bowl to coat with the breadcrumb mixture. Place the chicken finger on the baking sheet and repeat until all of the chicken is coated.
  7. Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake fore 30 minutes.
  8. Remove the baking sheet from the oven. The chicken should have a nice toasted colour on the outside and taste tender and juicy on the inside.
  9. Each person can add a squeeze of lemon to the chicken on their plates. Doing this earlier may make the crust soggy.
Please always handle raw chicken safely to avoid those pesky stomach aches or even a visit to the hospital. Always wash your hands after touching chicken. Clean all surfaces touched by the chicken with soap and hot water. Never leave raw chicken sitting out for more than 20 minutes. Wait until you're ready to coat the chicken before bringing it out. These simple guidelines can help you and your family stay safe.
