CEiMB - Crispy Chicken Fingers with Honey Mustard Sauce

In our Craving Ellie group this week, Jennifer of The Rookie Baker chose the chicken fingers.  They could not be easier to make.  Go to Jennifer's blog on the link above to see how she fared with hers and to get the recipe.

I'm home with workmen this morning hanging sheetrock, and today is Chandler's birthday, so he is coming home for a lunch of good chicken fingers!!  If he is a good boy, I might take him to the Cheesecake Factory tonight for dinner.

The chicken fingers were simple.  Really just marinate in buttermilk, then coat with a cereal coating.  I used Multi-Bran Chex because that is what I had on hand.  I did add some red pepper flakes to the mix to give them a bit of a kick.  I took my friend Kayte's advice and cooked them on a rack in the oven with a cookie sheet underneath.  They came out very crispy all over.  Great idea Kayte.  Thanks!

The honey mustard sauce is my favorite.   These were very good and a great pick!  Stop by next week as I am hosting and we will be cooking up some Tuna Noodle Casserole!

Those came out to have a interesting texture. There must have been a crunch.

I forgot to blog this. I am going to try to get it in before, I go to work.

Well HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHANDLER! You better take him to the Cheesecake Factory or he may never forgive you.
Good luck on that sheet rock hanging...such a messy job!
AND... those fingers looks DELISH! They look nice and crispy. I should have put the red pepper in my version - love the heat.

First things first: Happy Birthday, Chandler! (And, between you and me, who doesn't love a guy who is slightly bad some of the time, right? Cheesecake Factory sounds like a fine deal!) Your dish looks great, Peggy, it was a hit here as well.

Yours look fantastic! I didn't get mine coated nearly as well. I agree about the sauce...definitely my favorite part!
