Finger foods are a ton of fun! Not to mention super easy to make. They're great for all those fun backyard parties in the summer & super popular with the kids! As a kid, my favorite thing to order off of any menu was chicken tenders and fries.... Who am I kidding? It's still my favorite thing to order. So what better than a chicken tenders recipe to start off the summer fun! These chicken strips are nice and crispy on the outside due to the Panko bread crumbs & juicy on the inside. Even picky eaters would love it! Once you have one, you can't stop! Pair them with a side of your favorite dipping sauce,,, I love it with Buffalo Sauce & Ranch Dressing,,, and watch it disappear right before your eyes!
