I have already shared Oats Chicken FingersBread Crumbs coated chicken Fingers in my blog earlier which are so easy to make and also a kid friendly dish. A perfect starter or a snack. Kids love this finger food and it is  also an easy to make dish to rock the party. When i made this the whole lot went in a jiffy. I have reserved some for making a burger using this strips.

Crunchy coating with the juicy chicken inside is the highlight of the dish. It tastes similar to the fried chicken we buy from popular restaurants. It is a home style version of the tasty chicken finger.
