4 servings

  • 1 cup corn flakes
  • 1 cup plain bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice - the SECRET ingredient
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 pounds chicken breast tenders, 2 packages, cut into 2-inch pieces by GH (Grown-up Helpers)
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/4 cup honey mustard (recommended: Gulden's)
  • 1/4 cup barbecue sauce
Watch how to make this recipe.
  • Have your GH (Grown-up Helper) turn the oven on to 375 degrees F.

  • In a pie pan or other shallow, large dish, pour out the corn flakes. Crush the cereal up with your hands. Mix in bread crumbs, sugar, salt, pepper, and allspice - your SECRET ingredient. Do not tell anybody what your secret ingredient is - ever! If they ask how you make your special chicken toes, tell them about everything EXCEPT the secret.

  • Drizzle about 3 tablespoons vegetable oil evenly over the breading, tossing and turning it to mix the oil all through the bread crumbs and crushed-up corn flakes. Have the GH pour the oil out slowly. A vegetable oil bottle has a big opening so, 3

  • tablespoons will pour out pretty quickly, probably by the time you can count to 5, so watch the GH closely and count really loudly!

  • Have your GH cut the chicken fingers into toes, 2-inch pieces. Turn the chicken in flour, eggs and then in the special crunchy breading. Arrange the chicken toes on a nonstick baking sheet. Make your GH go and wash their hands. Place the chicken toes in the oven and cook 15 minutes or until crisp and brown all over.

  • Mix together honey mustard and barbecue sauce in a small bowl. Serve hot chicken toes with honey mustard and barbecue sauce for dipping.
