Baked Chicken Fingers- Homemade Oven Baked Chicken Fingers

Chicken fingers, it’s homemade and it’s baked…

Last weekend, dined out and had chicken fingers after a long time, enjoyed it so much. Since then, making chicken fingers in my kitchen had been on my must-do list. Had a chess night with friends and I couldn’t think of anything but chicken fingers and fries to entertain everyone. Also, made freshly squeezed mint-limeade, it was refreshing.

I baked the chicken fingers and they turned out awesome. Fries were made in the air fryer, turned out crispy and I can’t make fries anyway other than air fried, the best fries ever.

Make these chicken fingers and enjoy with your friends…
