How to make crunchy baked chicken fingers

Get your oven ready by preheating it to 400F, and line a baking sheet with foil. While the oven is heating up, get your chicken ready.

Cut the chicken breast into strips. Try to not cut them too thick as they will take longer to cook in the oven. 

Add the chicken strips into a mixing bowl and pour over the mustard. Make sure each piece of chicken is fully covered with mustard.  

Pour the bread crumbs into a flat dish to coat the mustard-covered chicken easier. Similar to the mustard, make sure there aren’t any naked spots on the chicken. 

Place the chicken strips onto the lined baking sheet and put them into the oven for 20 to 25 minutes. Use a meat thermometer in the thickest part of the chicken to check the chicken is fully cooked. The chicken should read 165F.
