    My kids love chicken fingers. This sounds easy, and that way I won’t have to buy them, I will just make my own.

    I love this simplified chicken strip coating method of shaking it in a bag. 🙂 It reminds me of my college years and boys and girls learning easy-to-do "dorm-recipes" from each other. This was actually one of those recipes. The secret lies in the marinade and the seasoning. The former makes it soft and the latter can make it spicy and even hot, if you prefer it that way.
