Cajun Chicken Fingers

I love love love chicken fingers. Whenever we go out to eat I always notice the chicken fingers and seriously debate getting them off the kids menu no matter where we are. I have finally found an easy easy way to make yummy chicken fingers.. .and they are super quick. I made these with my favorite Louisiana Mix Cajun Seasoning. You can add whatever seasoning you want to it to give it the flavor you like.

- 2 Chicken Breasts (cut into strips/chunks)
- 1/3 cup flour
- 1/4 cup King of the Cajun Louisiana Mix
- 3 eggs
- Salt/Pepper
- 1 1/2- 2 cups Kikkoman Panko Breadcrumbs (These are the best)
- Vegetable Oil

Set out 3 bowls. In Bowl #1 combine flour, Cajun mix, and a dash of Salt and Pepper. In Bowl #2 beat eggs. In Bowl #3 have Kikkoman Panko Breadcrumbs (sidenote--- these are the best Panko breadcrumbs i have found, they actually stick to food and don't flake off).

Dredge chicken in Flour/Cajun Mixture, shaking off any excess. Dip into Eggs and then coat all sides of chicken in Panko breadcrumbs. Set aside

In a heavy pot pour 2 inches of oil and let heat to 350 degrees. (if you don't have a thermometer you can test this with a piece of white bread. if the bread browns beautifully in about a minute you are at the right temp. If it gets soggy or burns, you need to adjust the temp.)

Working in batches (do not overload your oil or the temperature will drop) fry your chicken for about 2 minutes on both sides, or until Panko turns golden brown. Remove from oil and let set on paper towel lined plate to absorb extra oil.
