Baked Chicken Fingers with Avocado Dipping Sauce

Baked Chicken Fingers


1 1/4 lb. chicken tenders (or regular old chicken breast sliced into 1/2" strips)

2/3 c. plain bread crumbs

2 tsp. Lawry's season salt (if you don't have Lawry's around the house, you can substitute 3/4 tsp. garlic powder, 3/4 tsp. onion powder, and 1/2 tsp. kosher salt)

1 tsp. oregano

1 tsp. thyme

1/2 tsp. paprika

1/2 tsp. black pepper

cooking spray


Preheat oven to 400ยบ. Coat baking sheet with cooking spray and set aside. In a large ziplock bag, combine bread crumbs and spices. Toss in chicken tenders a few at a time and shake to coat. Space the chicken out evenly on the baking sheet and spray liberally with cooking spray. Bake for about 20 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through.

Avocado Dipping Sauce


2 medium, ripe avocados

2 Tbsp. sour cream (we use reduced fat/light, but any kind will do)

1 clove garlic, minced

1 tsp. lemon juice (I just use the stuff in the bottle)

salt and pepper to taste


Mash all ingredients together in a small bowl until smooth.
