Chicken Fingers

Chicken Fingers

People always love this recipe because they don't usually think of using the skin this way when cooking a piece of chicken. It adds a perfect, crunchy texture, and you won't want to eat a chicken wrap any other way without it. Kids also have a lot of fun shaking the bag when seasoning the chicken.

Ingredients

  • 1 boneless chicken breast, skin on
  • 1 Tablespoon chile powder
  • Juice from 1/2 a lemon
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • Pepper, to taste

Directions

Remove the skin from the chicken breast. Season with salt and pepper. Flatten the skin onto a baking sheet and place a second baking sheet on top of the skin. Cook in the oven until the skin becomes crispy and translucent.

Meanwhile, cut the chicken breast into strips and add to a sealed ziplock bag with the spices, lemon, pepper, and olive oil. Shake until the chicken is well coated. Bake until crispy, about 15 minutes. I like to serve this in a lettuce wrap with a piece of the skin, and a condiment like cranberry jelly, hoisin sauce, or barbecue sauce
