Bisquick Chicken Fingers
Making Chicken Fingers with Bisquick is a classic recipe that has been around forever. We thought that it would be fun to share our version of Bisquick Ultimate Chicken Fingers. Here is what you’ll need:
- BONELESS SKINLESS CHICKEN BREASTS – Cut into 1/2 inch strips. You can also use Boneless Skinless Chicken Tenderloins.
- BISQUICK – If you’d like to make this recipe gluten-free, you can also use Gluten Free Bisquick. You can also make y0ur own homemade Bisquick with this recipe!
- PARMESAN CHEESE – Grated. We always recommend buying a block of cheese and grating your own rather than buying the pre-shredded kind.
- EGG – For dredging your chicken.
- SEASONINGS – Garlic Powder, Salt and Paprika. You can also just use Garlic Salt if you’d like in place of the salt and garlic powder,
Air Fryer Bisquick Chicken Fingers
This recipe is also perfect to make in your Air Fryer as well. You can get the outer coating extra crispy, it takes just a couple of minutes and you can keep your oven free to cook something else if needed. To cook this recipe in your Air Fryer, simply assemble the ingredients as directed in the instructions. Preheat your Air Fryer to 375 and spray your basket with non-stick cooking spray. Cook the chicken tenders at 375 degrees for 12 minutes. Halfway through, flip them to ensure even cooking.
Best Dipping Sauces For Chicken Tenders
Chicken Fingers are great because there are just so many different sauces that you can dip them in. Some of my favorites are:
- Honey Mustard
- Bleu Cheese
- Fry Sauce
Notes, Tips and FAQs
- DO YOU HAVE TO USE EGG? – If you don’t want to use egg in this recipe, you can always substitute for Buttermilk or Heavy Cream. You could even use a high quality spicy mustard to help make the coating stick if you’d like.
- DO YOU HAVE TO USE CHICKEN BREASTS? – Also, try making this recipe with Chicken Thighs! They will come out a little more like chicken nuggets. Delicious!
- SHORTCUT – Some people like to put their Bisquick in a 1-gallon ziplock bag. Then you can dredge your chicken strips in the egg wash, place chicken in the bag of Bisquick Mixture, seal bag and shake it in the bag with Bisquick to coat.
- LINE COOKIE SHEET – Make sure you line your baking sheet with aluminum foil, parchment paper, wax paper or a silicon baking mat.
