What you'll need

  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon crumbled dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • Honey mustard dipping sauce:
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

How to make it

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Spray a baking sheet with nonstick vegetable oil spray.
  2. Cut each of the chicken breasts into 4 or 5 lengthwise "fingers." Place in a bowl. Add the vegetable oil and stir to coat everything evenly.
  3. In a bowl, stir together the bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, oregano, salt and pepper. Transfer to a plastic bag (make sure there are no holes). Add the chicken strips, 3 or 4 at a time, and shake to coat with the crumb mixture. Arrange on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining chicken strips and crumb mixture.
  4. Bake for 10 minutes, turn the strips over and continue to bake for another 5 to 10 minutes, until nicely browned and cooked through.
  5. Meanwhile, make the dipping sauce. Combine the honey, Dijon mustard and vegetable oil in a food processor or blender. Blend until smooth and creamy.
  6. Serve chicken fingers hot or at room temperature with honey mustard dipping sauce. If putting in a lunch bag, pack the sauce separately in a small, tightly sealed plastic container.
