Cooking Thursday

My friend Arlene from Nanaland, posted last week that she had made these yummy chicken Fingers.  I asked for the recipe, which she graciously passed on and they were so good!  I had to stop Bob from eating them, or we would have had no left-overs!  She soaks her chicken in buttermilk before preparing it.  I've never done that before, but this chicken was so tender, that I'll for sure do it again!
We loved them, and Arlene gave permission for me to share the recipe with you.  Try it - you'll like it!

Arlene's Parmesan Chicken Fingers
Chicken Tenders (Arlene does 2 packages and I did too - they are good cold)
Parmesan Cheese  - the cheap, grated kind
bread crumbs - I used Italian
vegetable oil
melted butter

Place chicken tenders in buttermilk for 8 hours or overnight.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Prepare a pan by lining it with foil or using parchment paper.
Pour vegetable oil over pan, enough to cover it.
Mix equal parts parmesan cheese and bread crumbs.  Remove chicken from the buttermilk and roll it in the crumbs.  Place it on the parchment paper.
When the pan is full, melt butter and pour it over the tenders.
Place in oven and bake for about 45 minutes to one hour.  (My chicken was done in 45 minutes)
Remove from oven and let set for about 15 minutes, then drain on paper towels before serving.

Thanks Arlene!

So glad you enjoyed them Mari. I never fry chicken anymore after finding this recipe. My family prefers it this way!

I printed the recipe from Arlene's blog but haven't tried them yet. I think this will make a good holiday weekend meal!!

Wow! I gotta make these for Austin. He is such a sneaky eater. I make all this wonderful Jamaican, Thai, and Mexican food that Anthony and Lori love, and Austin says, "Grandma makes the WORST food!" Hahahaha!! So I try to make chicken and meatball recipes that suit him occasionally!

The buttermilk is what made it so good!!

Hey Sweetie!
I'm finally back from my sort of blog break. I'm hoping to post tomorrow - but I'm trying to catch up with my blogging buddies a bit today. This sounds so good! I've made similar chicken breasts like this before - but I've never done the buttermilk thing either. I'll need to give it a try. Thanks to you and your Friend. ;)
Blessings. xoxo
