Oh, chicken fingers, pillar of American cooking (and the kids menu). Their beauty is in their simplicity: tender meat and a crunchy, deep-fried exterior. The slender, grab-able shape -- they’re called finger food for a reason -- begs to be dunked in something with an acidic kick, like barbecue sauce, ketchup, or a honey mustard sauce (we've got a great one below). In less time than it takes to drive to your local diner, you can make chicken fingers (or tenders or strips or whatever you call them) at home. Here are our favorite recipes.
