Gluten Free Ultimate Chicken Fingers

  These are very, very good. Just excellent. Stayed crisp, the coating stayed on, great taste, and very simple to make. By far, the favorite of the Betty Crocker Gluten Free recipes I have tried. I would recommend them to anyone, whether you need to eat gluten free or not. It is a light breading and not at all greasy. Just a great chicken strip.
  This is one I am going to make often. I bought chicken tenders from my local Fareway store that were on sale, so it was really easy to make and not a lot of prep. I hope you will give these a try.

  1. These are GREAT! I have a box of gluten-free Bisquick in my pantry but I wouldn't have given that recipe a second glance. I came here to see what I could make with some thawed, thin-cut chicken breasts and Myrna's enthusiastic review sealed the deal.
    I've never "double breaded" my chicken before (egg-flour-egg-flour) and it worked just fine--no fussing there! I feared the large amount of parm would make it salty (so I didn't add the 1/2 tsp called for) but that was not the case at all.

    I did add a few extra spices because I know my family's likes: 1/2 tsp each of powdered onion, powdered garlic, black pepper, and parsley flakes. Next time I will add in 1/2 tsp of celery salt as well. I will mix up a double or even triple batch (and store it in the freezer) just to have on hand. I sometimes buy those thin-cut turkey tenderloins when they go on sale, and this would be a great way to make them.

    I lined my pan with parchment, as it's no-stick and I like the way foods brown on it. I also laced them with a little olive oil because I was too lazy to melt butter. When I flipped the tenders over, they were indeed a lovely golden color.

    My husband and son hoovered them up with mango chutney and honey mustard dip, respectively. They made a great dinner along with buttered noodles, broccoli, and canned mandarin oranges. They both said they'd like them again, so this is now my "go-to" baked chicken tenders recipe--it's a keeper.

    Thank you so much for helping me make dinner tonight, Myrna! ;^) I just love this blog!
