Homemade Baked Chicken Fingers with Honey Dill Sauce


Chicken Fingers

  • Roughly 2 lbs chicken breasts, cut into strips
  • 2 tbsp soya sauce (or tamari)
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup or melted honey
  • 1 tbsp Smak Dab Hot and Sweet Dill or Hot Honey Jalapeño Mustard
  • 1 ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2½ cups panko bread crumbs
  • Good pinch of kosher salt  
  • Non-stick cooking spray

Honey Dill Sauce

  • 4 tbsp Hellman’s mayo
  • 2-3 tbsp melted honey (depending on how sweet you like it!)
  • 2 tbsp Smak Dab Hot and Sweet Dill
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh dill (or ½ tsp dried dill)

Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mix.


  1. In a bowl, add the chicken strips, soya sauce, maple syrup and mustard. Mix well and marinade for 1-4 hours in the fridge (or overnight for best flavour)
  2. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F, line a baking sheet with parchment paper and mist with non-stick spray.
  3. On a plate, sprinkle flour and add spices; mix well. Add the beaten eggs to a bowl, and on another plate, sprinkle the bread crumbs and add a good pinch of salt; mix well.
  4. Using one hand, grab a piece of chicken and coat with flour, place into the bowl with beaten eggs and toss lightly to coat, use the same hand and place the chicken onto the bread crumb plate. Using your other hand, toss the chicken with breadcrumbs until well coated, and place onto the baking sheet. Continue with all the pieces of chicken until they are all arranged on the baking sheet (be sure that they aren’t overlapping and overcrowded or they won’t get crispy). Lightly mist with non-stick cooking spray.
  5. Bake in the oven for 30-35 minutes, flipping halfway or until they are golden and crispy on the outside and cooked through on the inside. Serve with Honey Mustard Dill Sauce.
