Expert Tips

Bake it the night before, then pack it up for a picnic in the park the next day!

Create a new recipe just by cutting up the chicken! For Oven-Fried Chicken Fingers, cut chicken breast halves crosswise into 1 1/2-inch strips before coating with buttermilk. Bake uncovered for 20 minutes. Turn strips; bake about 20 minutes longer or until chicken is no longer pink in center.
