Honey-Soy Sauce Chicken Fingers

Adapted from White on Rice Couple

Yield: Approximately 30 chicken fingers


Chicken Fingers

2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast or chicken tenderloin

Approximately 2 cups of panko bread crumbs, or more if needed

Approximately 1 cup of flour, or more if needed

salt and pepper

Vegetable oil for frying

Honey-Soy Sauce

1/2 c ketchup

1/2 c honey

1/4 c soy sauce

1 Tbsp Sriracha Sauce (chili garlic sauce)

1 Tbsp fresh lime juice

1 Tbsp rice wine vinegar

Cilantro and fresh lime wedges to garnish


If using chicken breasts, cut them into long strips of similar size.

Set up your dredging station, using 3 separate bowls (i.e. one bowl for the panko, one bowl for the beaten eggs and one bowl with the flour, salt and pepper).

Dredge each strip of chicken in the flour, then the egg, then the panko. Place the breaded chicken fingers on a cookie sheet, in a single layer, to prevent sticking.

Heat oil to 325 F (You can also test if the oil is ready by dropping a few bread crumbs into the pan. The oil will bubble and seize the bread crumbs when it is at the right temperature.) 

Place several chicken fingers in the hot oil, being careful not to crowd the pan. Fry for approximately 3 minutes on each side, until golden and cooked through. When finished, remove from pan and place on a paper towel lined plate. (The chicken fingers can be placed in a low oven to keep warm)

To make the sauce, combine all the ingredients in a large skillet and whisk to combine. Gently heat until warm and slightly sticky. 

To finish, toss the chicken fingers in the sauce, to cover both sides.  Alternatively, the warm sauce can be served on the side.  

Garnish with chopped cilantro and lime wedges.
