Chicken strips have always been a favorite dish for kids and are perfect to serve for family dinners. Frozen chicken fingers can’t quite match the taste of freshly baked chicken strips, and this recipe is sure to become a family favorite once the kids get a taste.
What sets these chicken strips apart is the cheesy cornflake breading. 4 ounces of our Cabot Lite50 Sharp Cheddar mixes with 1½ cups of crushed cornflakes to create a crunchy, golden brown breading that the family will love. This fresh, flavorful breading is much more scrumptious than any frozen chicken strips could ever be. Serve the baked chicken strips with mashed potatoes, a salad or fresh veggies for a nutritious meal that you can feel good about.

These were absolutely amazing! Super crunchy & so much flavor!
These are really good and so easy to fix!!
So easy to make and the kids love them
Makes great chicken fingers, though I changed the corn flakes for Italian bread crumbs and added some shredded parmigian Cheese. The family very much liked the fresh large chicken fingers over the frozen ones. A little labour intensive, but I think next time I will take the time to make extra and freeze. Thank you for the recipe.
Tastes really good. It a bit of work but it’s really good for when I have more time.
