Chicken Fingers with Honey Mustard

Nicole Bredeweg Recipe

By Nicole Bredeweg nikkitten

I have a backlog of recipes to be added to my cookbook, and this is one of them. But I remember it as being easy, delicious, and, how do you say? clean tasting? If you want to make your own chicken nuggets, instead of the over-processed ones you can buy, here's one choice!
Also, if it's cheaper to buy chicken strips, that's all the more easy for you.

Ingredients

HONEY MUSTARD:
1/2 c
honey
1/4 c
dijon mustard
CHICKEN STRIPS:
4
chicken breasts, boneless and skinless (4 oz each)
1 c
flour
1/2 tsp
salt
1/4 tsp
pepper
3/4 c
milk
1 c
oil for frying

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix honey and Dijon ahead of time. Making it a couple of days in advance will allow the flavors to mix and enhance.
2
Cut chicken into 1/2" x 2" strips.
3
Mix flour, salt, and pepper in a shallow bowl. Dip chicken in milk. Roll in flour mixture to coat well. Place chicken on waxed paper.
4
Pour 1/4" of oil into a large heavy skillet. Heat over medium-high heat to 350*F, or until a cube of white bread dropped in oil browns with 1 minute.
5
Divide chicken into batches. Place chicken in an even layer in hot oil. Fry, turning once, for about 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown and crisp. Drain on paper towels. Serve with sauce.
