Asian Chicken Fingers

Sweet & spicy Asian chili sauce is smothered over fluffy breaded chicken strips creating one absolutely delicious and sticky chicken dish! 

If you can say that fast enough than you can probably make these super easy chicken fingers! No really it’s that easy…The batter has only 2 ingredients (as your only whisking a baking mix & eggs) then frying. Not only are these so fluffy but the chicken itself is so tender as the baking soda and vinegar REALLY TENDERIZE the meat. You will NOT detect any soda or vinegar in the meat but this works wonders for tenderizing meat. A big thanks to my aunt Nadia who shared this wonderful recipe with me (and helpful meat tip). Serve these with Mae Ploy Sweet Chilli sauce and you have one incredibly delicious chicken dish!

    1. Olga,
      You can certainly use flour, however they may not be as fluffy since a baking mix usually consists of a rising agent (like baking powder) and other ingredients flour may not have. Any generic brand baking mix will do as long as it’s all purpose.

    1. Thank you for taking the time to comment. You can certainly make a home made baking mix. I believe it usually consists of shortening, flour, and rising agents. Please let me know how it turns out.
