Corn Flake Encrusted Chicken Fingers (Gluten Free!)

I’ve mentioned my love for chicken fingers before on the blog, and you guys know I’m always looking for ways to still enjoy them, minus the grease.


Well — I think I may have finally created the perfect baked chicken finger! I’ve used bread crumbs or flour in previous recipes, and while it was good, it didn’t really create that nice crunchy crust that fried chicken fingers have. So this time I decided to try some crushed up cornflakes for the crust — and boy, was it good. Super crunchy without needing to be fried, and the spices add a nice flavor, too.


This recipe is definitely going among my favorites.


Want to recreate these gluten free chicken fingers at home for yourself? The recipe is over at the Attune Foods blog today. Check it out! :)

    Homemade chicken fingers were my dads specialty growing up. Yours look so tasty. They would be awesome with some homemade honey mustard dipping sauce.

    These are excellent! For a real treat try banana ketchup with them (it’s so delicious). You can find premade banana ketchup at International grocery stores or World Market. I’m currently working on a homemade recipe (to mimic my favorite sushi place, which coincidentally has the BEST chicken fingers in town…the advantages of friends with small kids).

    Who doesn’t love chicken fingers!?
    If I may recommend, try using crushed up rice crackers.
    I drizzle my chicken with olive oil and then roll it in the crushed up rice crackers with a little bit of pepper and garlic salt!

    I’ve done baked chicken breasts with Chex cereal on top, and that was really delicious too!
