Tuesday Treats: Easy Chicken Fingers Parmesan

It’s Shake-n-Bake and I helped! Sometimes you want finger food that’s “homemade” and quick. This quick dish can pass for nibbles or dinner, if you toss in some sides.

Total Time: 24 Mins
Prep: 10 mins
Cook: 14 min
See why kids (and adults) love chicken fingers! Turn to our Easy Chicken Fingers with Parmesan recipe for some chicken fingers the whole family will adore.

What You Need
1/3 cup KRAFT Grated Parmesan Cheese
1 pkt. SHAKE ‘N BAKE Chicken Coating Mix
2 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch-wide strips
1 cup KRAFT Original Barbecue Sauce

Let’s Make It
1 – Heat oven to 400°F.
2 – Add cheese to coating mix in shaker bag. Moisten chicken with water; gently shake off excess water.
3 – Add 2 or 3 chicken strips to shaker bag; close bag and shake gently until evenly coated. Place in single layer on baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Repeat with remaining chicken. Discard any remaining coating mixture. (I use Reynolds Wrap to line the baking sheet but still spray it with butter flavored cooking spray. Easy clean up. 🙂 )
4 – Bake 12 to 14 min. or until chicken is done. Serve with barbecue sauce.

Kitchen Tips
Tip 1 – Substitute
Prepare using chicken tenders and/or your favorite variety of KRAFT Barbecue Sauce.

Tip 2 – Special Extra
Serve on lettuce-covered plates with small bowls of barbecue sauce on the side.

Tip 3 – Substitute
Substitute KRAFT Classic Ranch Dressing for the barbecue sauce.

Silver’s Tip – I substituted Crispy Buffalo Shake-n-Bake for a spicier taste because that’s the way we roll ’round here. 😉

As always, you can go to the Kraft Recipe site by CLICKING HERE to get all the details and the nutritional information. This is a recipe that a young woman working on her accounting degree and CPA certification, with two little brothers at home and dancing at Chasin’ Tails, the Nightriders strip club, used all the time to feed those little brothers. Lainey Walker, the heroine of NIGHT MOVES swears by it. Hollywood Hilton, her hero, likes them too, and he insists that she make them to bring to all the parties at the Nightrider clubhouse. Those Wolves can sure eat a lot of them. If you aren’t familiar with Hollywood and Lainey’s story, you can read their book for free with a Kindle Unlimited subscription, or you can buy it. Just click on the book cover for the buy link.

  1. Yummers. You know, now that I think about it, I don’t think I’ve ever used Shake n Bake. I remember the commercial, though, and wondering why Mom never bought the stuff. This recipe sounds awesome and super easy, so I might have to break the streak.

    And yeah, I can totally see the Wolves scarfing these down. I wonder how many pounds of chicken breasts she has to buy and how long it takes her to make enough for them. ;o)

    • Silver James says:

      ROFL. Yeah…Lainey buys in bulk! And Tyson’s offers precut tenders so she uses pounds and pounds of them. Good thing the clubhouse has a commercial kitchen. 😉

      I’ll admit, my mother never used Shake-n-Bake either but I use it now, occasionally, usually with a recipe. I’ve never used it for “fried” chicken because that’s egg and flour and hot grease to get true Southern-fried style. 😉
