Oven Baked Chicken Fingers

Chicken fingers baked in the oven come out crispy without added greasiness or calories.

You can enjoy this high-protein snack anytime with low calorie dippers (such as a sugar-reduced ketchup featured here). They're easy to make and hot out of the oven, guests won't realize they're not fried. You can make them in large or small batches; just be sure they're separated on the cookie sheet during baking.

The secret ingredient is our Louisiana Fish Fry Seasoning. This powdery mix is available at most grocery stores in the baking aisle. It can be used on a variety of foods and when you want to splurge, it's excellent for frying, of course. When you choose to curb the calories, however, oven baking is the way to go. It's also excellent for oven-baked okra (go ahead; give that one a try). A salted version is available that is a little bit coarser - and it is excellent for fried catfish. The unsalted mix lets you control salt content and it's also lower in carbohydrates.
