Bisquick Chicken Fingers
These delicious Bisquick chicken fingers are even better than restaurant versions!
Who else remembers how fun it was to eat chicken nuggets as a kid? You'd dip those crunchy bites of chicken into your dipping sauce of choice (ketchup? barbecue sauce? honey mustard? so many options!) and then chow down. We certainly have fond memories of those days, and so we developed our very own chicken fingers recipe using an ingredient that might seem unusual. But we guarantee it will lead to some of your crispiest chicken fingers ever!
These Bisquick chicken fingers are easy to make, and they will have you reliving your childhood in a flash. Plus your own kids will be super impressed that you can make chicken nuggets at home (and they'll love that they taste even better than a restaurant version). You'll wonder how you got along before learning how to make chicken fingers with Bisquick!
How to Make Bisquick Chicken Tenders with No Egg
For those with egg allergies, or those who don't wish to use eggs for another reason, there are plenty of other ingredients you can use to adhere the Bisquick breading to your chicken tenders. Dredge your chicken tenders in buttermilk or heavy cream prior to adding the breading. If have a high quality mustard that you like, you can also use that! It will help the breading stick to the chicken, and it will give you a delicious mustard flavor in your chicken tenders.
