Chicken Fingers

I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend. I am actually on vacation this week, at home, trying to potty train my 3and 1/2 year old and I am failing miserably. Any advice or tips welcome. But back to the food. These crispy,crunchy, and delicious chicken fingers are from a great blog, one I really love and have bookmarked numerous recipes to try and this is the first, and that blog is Coleen's Recipes. Coleen lives in Allaska, how cool is that, no pun intended. So, if you haven't already, please visit her. These chicken fingers were moist and extra crunchy and my whole family inhaled them. They were just as good the next day. So, in my book, these are a "keeper".




Chicken Fingers


6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 cups buttermilk
1 tsp garlic powder
2 cups flour
2 eggs, beaten
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp onion powder
vegetable oil


Combine buttermilk, eggs and garlic powder in a large ziploc bag. Cut the chicken into long half inch strips and put them in the same ziploc bag. Refrigerate until ready to cook(at least 2 hours).
In another ziploc bag combine flour,salt,pepper and onion powder. Shake up, to mix well.

When it is time to cook, follow these steps:



1. Drain chicken(saving liquid) and coat chicken in flour mixture.

2. Shake off excess flour and put back in liquid again.

3. Repeat step one, then discard buttermilk liquid.

4. Fry chicken until golden brown. Keep warm in the oven.






Trust me, this is a great recipe and not just for everyday dinner but make a bunch, for your next party and serve them with some ranch dipping sauce or your favorite hot sauce and watch them disappear. Thanks Coleen, for a great recipe that will become a regular in my house. And a special thanks to Donna over at My Tasty Treasures, for the two awards. I appreciate them.

  14. My daughter is about the same age had been having accidents CONSTANTLY. I finally started a star chart where she got a star at the end of every accident free day. It totally did the trick, and now we use the stars for other things. Just an idea, best of luck, that is not an easy time!

    The chicken fingers look wonderful!

  15. I have not made homemade fingers in a while...probably will while I am home in Texas, or at least have some good ole southern fried ones :)

  16. My kids would love your chicken fingers!!!! (As would my husband and I!) I much prefer homemade chicken fingers/nuggets, instead of the nasty processed kind you can get at the store!

    As for the potty training thing...we've had such a hard time with our son (he's now 4). He's finally just about gotten the hang of it, but it was a MAJOR struggle! We tried EVERYTHING...having him walk around without a diaper/underwear, wearing pull-ups that "supposedly" were going to alert him when he was wet (ask me if he cared?!?) We also tried rewarding him, but I think what it really boils down to is that they'll do it when they're ready--I almost found that it became more of a "power struggle" when we pushed it. They do have some cute little videos out there that got my son more interested (ie: Elmo's Potty Time, Potty Time with Bear, etc). Good luck!!!

  18. I'm so glad you tried the chicken fingers, they really are a treat after using the pre-prepared/frozen commercial ones. Your little girls are SO SO cute. As for potty training...boy, every child is different. I know we bought our daughter some Minnie Mouse panties (she was in love with Minnie Mouse at the time) and the first time she had an accident in the new panties, I told her "I can't believe you pee'd on Minnie Mouse".......she never did it again LOL.......a mothers shame is such a powerful thing LOL.
