These crunchy, crispy chicken fingers aren't just for kids. Corn Chex cereal is the simple base for an out-of-the ordinary coating, perfectly complemented by a sweet and snappy honey mustard dipping sauce.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Use any plain flavor of Chex® cereal you like. I like the sweet, toasty flavor of the corn-flavored one for this recipe.
  • tip 2
    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.
  • tip 3
    You can sub maple syrup for the honey in this dish with fine results.
