Gluten Free Chicken Fingers Recipe

This gluten free chicken fingers recipe is healthy and delicious, too! Just like the chicken fingers from your favorite diner – minus the grease. The corn flakes make them nice and crunchy, even though they are baked, and the spices add delicious flavor.

Gluten Free Chicken Fingers

(makes ~3 to 4 servings)


  • 1 package chicken tenders (1 to 1.5 lbs)
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 Tbsp. dijon mustard
  • 2 C (gluten free certified) corn flakes, finely crushed
  • 1/4 tsp. each of: salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder, chili powder


Preheat oven to 375.

1) In a small bowl, combine the egg and mustard. On a plate, mix the crushed corn flakes and spices.

2) One by one, dredge the chicken tenders in the egg/mustard mixture, then in the corn flake mixture until fully coated. Place the coated tenders on a cooking sprayed or nonstick baking sheet. You may need more than one — I used two baking sheets!

3) Bake at 375 for 12 to 15 minutes, or until golden brown.

Enjoy! These are great for lunch with a big side salad, or try them for dinner with some roasted sweet potatoes and broccoli.
