Chicken Fries

I love foods that have double identities. Depending on the occasion or your mood, you can switch it up. Like salads. You can whip up an easy side salad, but adding some protein or cheese or veggies can turn it into a hearty main dish. Admittedly, I probably take this idea a little too far sometimes. I sort of think that ice cream can double as both dessert and breakfast.

Chicken Fries

These chicken fries are basically chameleons. They’re very adaptive. You can serve them as a main dish, or an appetizer.

Once again, there are quite a few appetizers I’ve eaten for my entire dinner. Can’t help myself, they’re too delicious to have just as a precursor to something else.

Some fast food restaurants serve chicken fries, which is actually how I was inspired for these ones. But these chicken fries are just as tasty (maybe more tasty) as the restaurant versions, but less expensive and less greasy. Both of those are plenty good reasons to whip these babies up. They are easy as pie I tell ya. And quick! In less than 30 minutes you’ll have the yummiest chicken fries ever on the table and the whole family will beg you to make them again and again!

I’m alll about chicken fingers, but the chicken fries at fast-food places (eh hemmmm burgerking) totally gross me out! Making them from scratch would definitely take me from a hater to a lover, because these looks so good!


Are these fresh breadcrumbs or dried. If dried, are they plain or seasoned.

    Hi Jackie, this recipe calls for dried plain breadcrumbs. 🙂

My 2 and 4 year old kiddos are going to go bananas over these!!!!!!!!

    They’re so yummy and easy peasy! I hope they love them! 🙂

Dang girl! Totally could go for some of these chicken fries…like NOW! Pinned and sharing on FB!! Miss you girlie!!

    Chicken fry fan?! I love you more every day 😉 I seriously miss you to death!

Hi! These look great. Can you make them with Panko breadcrumbs? Thanks!

Oh my goodness, this looks delicious! I’m definitely making this! thanks for sharing! A healthier option for a family favorite.

So tasty! These are the absolute best. We make them with whole wheat bread crumbs and wheat flour. Cook a little longer in our oven.

Turned out just the way I expected 🙂 Guilt free chicken fries, thank you so much!

What brand of bread crumbs do you use? I just made these today, and they were so good! But I’d love to get finer bread crumbs for next time.

    I typically use the Kroger brand! Nothing too fancy over here 😉
