Get ready to try our Honey Crunch Chicken Fingers recipe. These tasty chicken fingers combine the crispiness of honey-flavored oats with succulent chicken tenders, creating a dish that's both sweet and savory.

Each bite starts with a satisfying crunch, followed by the juicy tenderness of the chicken. The sweetness of honey and the savory paired with the seasoned chicken fingers create a flavorful balance of textures and tastes that makes these chicken fingers an instant favorite.

The chicken fingers are coated with honey-flavored oats, adding a delightful crunch.

More honey is added to the crunchy cereal to add more sweetness that contributes to our twist on the classic chicken finger recipe, making it stand out on any table.

Chicken Fingers wouldn’t be complete without sauce. We have a homemade creamy mustard sauce and sweet apricot ketchup sauce that are perfect for dipping crispy and sweet chicken fingers. Dip the chicken fingers into the two sauces to get the most flavor out of this recipe.

  2. Rinse chicken and pat dry with paper towels; season with 1 teaspoon of the salt and 1/2 teaspoon of the pepper.

  4. Beat eggs, and then add honey and remaining salt and pepper.
  5. Pour into a shallow bowl or pie plate and set aside.
  6. To assemble, dip chicken tenders into egg mixture, then into crushed cereal. Place on a sheet tray and bake for 15-20 minutes or until chicken is golden brown and has reached 165°. Flip halfway through cooking time.
