Parmesan Chicken Fingers with Lemon Piccata Sauce

RatingDifficultyBeginner

From Kiddie Plate to Dinner Date, this is what I call a scrumptiously easy 2-for-1 meal! Make the chicken fingers for the kids, then dress up the plate for adults with my zesty & fresh lemon Piccata sauce. My healthy tip: instead of frying, bake tenders in the oven – they’ll be golden brown, crispy, delicious and great for dipping!
