Crispy Baked Chicken Fingers with a Spicy Avocado Sauce are delicious, crunchy and kid friendly.
I’m excited to be joining a group of talented bloggers in the Secret Recipe Club!! I’d heard about the club from several blogger friends who participate…and now I get to join them too!
If you aren’t familiar with the Secret Recipe Club (SCR), here is how it works: Each month, I will be assigned a new blog where I select one recipe from their site, make it, take photos of it, and write a blog post about it. At the same time, someone will be assigned to my blog and make one of my recipes and blog about it on their site. We all link back to each other, and get familiar with blogs that we might not have seen before! How cool is that??
My blog assignment for this month was SteaknPotatoesKindaGurl. This is my first blog assignment since joining the club! I LOVE Desiree‘s blog! It’s full of mouth-watering recipes. Desiree is an Ohio girl, who is family oriented, and has some great Southern recipes.
The recipe I chose to make was one that I knew was kid-friendly and that husband would adore! It’s quick, easy and great for back to school! Chicken Fingers with Spicy Avocado Sauce are a great meal or snack anytime !
I tweaked the recipe a little to dip the chicken in flour and egg before dredging through the bread crumbs. I also added parmesan cheese to the bread crumbs. The Spicy Avocado Sauce is awesome and goes great with the crispy chicken fingers. To keep the Avocado sauce kid friendly, you may want to consider leaving out the jalapeños.
Thank you Desiree for a wonderful recipe!
