I am going retro on you today!
See, I found all these photos deep down in my computer that I thought I lost! Including about 100 pictures I took of my older son last year a day or so before we moved out of our last house! AND including photos from about 5 recipes that I really enjoyed and never posted!
I was really upset when I thought I lost these photos. I really have no idea how they magically appeared back in my photo program. I’ll take it! ( Hey, I have never been known to be tech savvy)
Before I became an ALDI-aholic. The only item I ever purchased there were their Sweet Potato Chips. I have always been a sweet potato chip lover.
And since, I love coating chicken with crunchy things and baking it, to make it taste like junk food. It made total sense to make Sweet Potato Chip Crusted Chicken Fingers.
I actually made these chicken fingers in May 2013 when I was staying with my parents for a few weeks while we were waiting to move into our new house in Cedar Falls, Iowa. My parents live in the Western Chicago Suburbs. That is why there is a page of the Chicago tribune in these pictures.
Sweet Potato Chip Chicken Fingers ( Serves 4-6 )
2 lbs of chicken breast- sliced into chicken strip sized pieces
1 bag of sweet potato chips – crushed
your favorite seasoning
Put your sweet potato chips into a bowl and crush them. Add your favorite seasoning to the chips. Add both eggs in another bowl and whip them. Set up a dipping station. place each chicken piece into the egg mixture-followed by the sweet potato chip mixture. Place each chicken finger onto a cookie sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.
I also paired these wonderful crispy tenders with a homemade maple mustard dipping sauce. To make this mustard maple sauce mix Dijon mustard and maple syrup to your taste specifications then add a little plain yogurt for creaminess.
Oh my Gawsh! these were so good! I recall that my dad and brother Brad couldn't eat them fast enough! I really need to make these again sometime soon. My son, who is now twice as old would be all over this!
