Oven Chicken πŸ” Fingers

July 27th is National Chicken πŸ” Finger Day

Chicken fingers, also known as chicken tenders, chicken goujons, chicken strips, tendies or chicken fillets, are chicken meat prepared from the pectoralis minor muscles of the animal. These strips of white meat are located on either side of the breastbone, under the breast meat (pectoralis major). They may also be made with similarly shaped pieces cut from chicken meat, usually the breast, or sometimes just pulverized chicken flesh.

Chicken fingers are prepared by coating chicken meat in a breading mixture and then deep frying them, in a manner similar to the preparation of schnitzel. Chicken fingers are a popular fast-food snack in the U.S.

Chicken fingers were first made and named by the owners/operators of Spanky's in Savannah, Georgia. One of the original owners, Ansley Williams, continues to operate Spanky's today and it is known as the Home of the Original Chicken Finger
