  • 1/3 cup Sriracha sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sesame oil, regular or toasted
  • 1/2 teaspoon pressed garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 pound boneless chicken breast, cut into strips, or chicken tenders
  • 1 1/2 cups panko breadcrumbs

Steps to Make It

  1. Line a large baking sheet or shallow baking pan with foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray or baking spray. Heat the oven to 425 F.

  2. Combine the Sriracha sauce, honey, soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic, and ginger in a bowl.

  3. Pour the panko crumbs in a wide, shallow bowl.

  4. Dip the chicken strips or tenders in the sriracha sauce mixture to coat thoroughly, then roll in the panko crumbs. Arrange the chicken fingers in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet.

  5. Bake for 20 minutes, or until cooked through and lightly browned. The internal temperature (check the center of the thickest piece) should be at least 165 F. on a food thermometer.

*Sriracha sauce is an Asian style hot sauce, made with hot peppers, vinegar, garlic, and other seasonings. You can find it in the Asian or ethnic foods section of most grocery stores.

Serve these delicious chicken fingers with sweet and sour sauce, sweet chili mayonnaise, chipotle mayonnaise, or your favorite barbecue sauce.
