These chicken fingers are delicious, These are an option for the entire family, just pair these with  a vegetable or salad for yourself and add a carb for your children or your spouse. These are crispy and tasty. See the ingredients and the calorie counts below.

This is what you need to start off with.

Get your chicken, trim the fat and  I filet these breasts and then cut in to strips.  I used 2 breasts  and cut them in to 1 to 2 ounce strips. 2 breasts made about 11 chicken fingers.

In a dish or on a plate I mix the mayonnaise and egg with a fork till well blended

After it is blended together,  crush your pork rinds and place them on a plate or dish also.

Add to the pork rinds your parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper and mix together in the bowl.

Dip your chicken strips in the mayonnaise mixture and then coat with the pork rind and cheese mixture and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and sprayed with  cooking spray.

When you have all your chicken strips coated. Place them in a pre-heated oven at 375 for 30 to 40 minutes till golden brown and crisp on the edges.

This is what my strips looked like  a serving is 2 to 3 strips which is about 3 to 5 ounces depending on how you cut yours. I paired these with green beans and butter and you can dip these in ranch or a sour creme dip, whatever your preference is. You can heat these up the next day and they still taste good, but you loose that crispy crunch.  Leave us a message if you make these and let us know if you liked them and if you changed anything in the recipe.
