Expert Tips

Use any plain flavor of Chex® cereal you like. I like the sweet, toasty flavor of the corn-flavored one for this recipe.

These chicken fingers make a great game-day snack or even a weeknight meal. For dinner, just add a green vegetable or salad on the side to make it a meal.

You can sub maple syrup for the honey in this dish with fine results.
