My family loved these chicken fingers. I like them because I don’t have to deep fry them. I’m babysitting some little nieces and nephews next weekend (who tend to be very picky eaters at times) and my daughter and I are making these for them. I know they will just love them!

I ran out of panko, so I ended up using some crushed up cornflake crumbs to supplement the panko I had, and they ended up…soggy. I’ve never had a problem using cornflake crumbs and panko interchangeably before; although the taste is different the texture is not, so I’m not sure what happened.

That aside, they weren’t bad. We ate them with honey-bbq sauce. I’ll try your ginger chicken tender recipe with all panko and see if that makes a difference in crunch.
