Oven Baked Chicken Fingers with Spicy Maple Mustard Dip

You’ll be shocked at how easy it is to make perfectly crisp homemade baked (not fried!) chicken fingers at home along with a dip that will quickly become a favourite in your house just like it is in ours!  

If you’ve been buying chicken fingers pre-made and want to create something more wholesome for your crew … try this recipe!  These chicken fingers have so much flavour thanks to the Spicy Maple Mustard and are super crispy, moist and tender.  The secret to crispy chicken fingers is in the coating which gets a quick toast in a pan with some extra virgin olive oil before being baked.  We go out of our way to buy organic chicken that is sourced from a local farm that cares for their animals and I would urge you to do the same!  Like most kids, there are few things that my kids like more than chicken fingers for dinner. They’re fun to eat, taste great and can be dipped … and anything that can be dipped earns huge bonus points in the kid world!

I partnered with Maison Orphée this month to create this recipe using some of their amazing products: have you tried any of them?  I’m SO impressed; we’ve used them for years!  I LOVE their extra virgin olive oils, I buy it every week (we go through a lot of olive oil and theirs is such a beautiful product) along with their coconut oil and grey sea salt that I buy for everyone I know, and Maison Orphée has just come out with a line of new mustards and vinaigrette dressings (that double as a marinade) that are all sooooo good!

Ingredients

Spicy Maple Mustard Dip

  • 1/4 cup Maison Orphée Spicy Maple Mustard
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup optional, depending on how sweet you like it

Chicken:

  • 3 pounds chicken tenders or chicken breast cut into strips about ½” thick
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt I use Maison Orphée Fine Grey Sea Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

Flour coating

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

Egg coating:

  • 4 free range eggs
  • 1 tablespoon Maison Orphée Spicy Maple Mustard

Panko coating

  • 1/4 cup Maison Orphée extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 1/2 cups panko bread crumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper (you can alternately place a metal baking rack on each baking sheet, both work).

  2. To prepare the dip, stir the mustard and mayonnaise together in a small bowl. Add maple syrup to taste, stir well, and refrigerate until ready to use.

  3. Place the chicken in a medium bowl and season with the salt, pepper, paprika and garlic powder. Toss to coat and set aside.

  4. In a separate shallow medium bowl or pie plate, stir together all of the flour coating ingredients and set aside.

  5. In a separate shallow medium bowl or pie plate, whisk together the eggs and mustard and set aside.

  6. To make the panko coating, heat the olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat and add the panko bread crumbs, salt, pepper, paprika and garlic powder. Stir constantly with a wooden spoon, tossing until the panko is lightly toasted and fragrant, 2-3 minutes. Remove from the heat, place in a large shallow dish and set aside.

  7. To assemble the chicken fingers, lightly dredge a piece of chicken on all sides in the flour coating (shaking off the excess), followed by the egg mixture (again on both sides) and then the panko mixture, being sure to lightly press some panko on all sides of the chicken finger. Place the finger on the prepared baking sheet and repeat this process with the remaining chicken fingers until they are all coated.

  8. Bake the chicken fingers for approximately 15-20 minutes or until the chicken fingers are golden brown and the internal temperature is 165F. Remove from the oven and serve immediately with the dipping sauce.

    Hi Tori love the recipes and following along with your insta stories! And thank you for replying with a question I had on instagram in regards to a rug Jillian posted ANYWAY! I’m wondering if you have any good vegetarian recipes for the crock pot that I can put on in the morning and leave all day. Thanks so much! Natasha.

    1. Tori Wesszer

      Hi Natasha! Thanks for the note! I personally don’t cook with a crock pot that often but have been asked a few questions about it… I’ll add it to my list and hopefully will carve out some time to create a few recipes! Take care, Tori

    These were so yummy! I made with honey mustard as that’s what I had and they were so tasty, and my toddler loved them as well! I made some into bite sized nugget pieces and they were a huge hit as well. Thanks for sharing this recipe!
