Thai Sticky Chicken Fingers


Gluten-Free Thai Sticky Chicken Fingers are a crunchy, sticky, and irresistible gluten-free appetizer, dinner, or recipe for any occasion. Absolutely addicting!



Capital Duh-eyeing over today’s recipe for gluten-free Thai Sticky Chicken Fingers, which are going to be a smash hit at your Super Bowl watching party this weekend (or heck, dinner tonight!)

Chicken breasts sliced into strips are coated in a gluten-free breading that’s spiked with sliced almonds for a spectacular taste and crunch that, get this, actually stays on the chicken fingers! How many times have you made homemade chicken fingers or chicken breasts only to have the breading fall right off the dang things after pulling them out of the oven? I’ll show you my secret to making sure it stays firmly in place.

After baking, the chicken strips are tossed in a sticky-salty-sweet, Thai-inspired sauce then placed back in the oven for a few minutes to create a fabulous tacky coating. And good tacky. Not like, blatantly cutting someone in line at the fish market, which I’ve been fuming over for the past four days. COME ON!! Anyway, these chicken fingers are going to knock your socks off. A little sweet, a little heat, and perfectly crunchy and sticky. Grab a wet wipe.

Thai Sticky Chicken Fingers

Gluten-Free Thai Sticky Chicken Fingers are a crunchy, sticky, and irresistible gluten-free appetizer, dinner, or recipe for any occasion. 

Ingredients

  • 1-3/4lbs chicken breasts cut into 1” thick strips
  • 1/2 cup gluten-free or all-purpose flour (dish will not be GF if using AP flour)
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 Tablespoons milk (any kind, I used unsweetened almond milk)
  • 4 cups gluten-free Rice Chex pulverized into 2 cups crumbs OR 2 cups panko bread crumbs (dish will not be GF if using panko)
  • 3/4 cup sliced almonds, divided
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
  • For the sauce:
    • 1/2 cup sweet chili sauce
    • 1/2 cup water
    • 1/4 cup brown sugar
    • 1/4 cup gluten-free Tamari or soy sauce (dish will not be GF if using soy sauce)
    • 2 Tablespoons rice vinegar
    • 2 Tablespoons fresh lime juice
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
    • 1 glove garlic, microplaned or minced
    • 1/4 teaspoon red chili pepper flakes (or more or less)

Directions

  1. Line 2 baking sheets with foil then spray very well with nonstick spray and set aside.
  2. Whisk eggs and milk in a shallow dish. Add 1/2 cup almond slices to a food processor then process until mostly fine crumbs and then pour into another shallow dish. Add Rice Chex to food processor then process until fine crumbs and then add to almond crumbs. (Alternatively you could add Rice Chex to a large Ziplock bag then pulverize by rolling over the bag with a rolling pin.) Season almond + bread crumb mixture lightly with salt and pepper.
  3. Add flour, 3/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper to a large Ziplock bag then toss with chicken fingers until well coated. In batches, shake excess flour from chicken fingers then dunk into egg mixture, and then roll in almond + bread crumb mixture, pressing to make sure crumbs stick. Place onto prepared baking sheets then refrigerate for 20-30 minutes to let breading fully adhere - don’t skip this step or breading will fall off. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  4. Spray tops of chicken fingers with extra virgin olive oil or nonstick spray then bake for 10 minutes. Flip then spray tops of chicken fingers again with nonstick spray. Place back into the oven, flipping and rotating baking sheets, and then bake for 7-9 more minutes or until chicken fingers are golden brown and cooked through.
  5. Meanwhile combine ingredients for sauce in a small saucepan then bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Lower heat to medium then cook until sauce is reduced and slightly thickened, 5-6 minutes. Pour into a wide bowl then dunk baked chicken fingers into sauce using tongs and place back onto baking sheets. Bake for 4-5 more minutes, watching closely to avoid burning, then serve sprinkled with remaining 1/4 cup sliced almonds and chopped cilantro.

Notes

Sauce slightly adapted from Simple Comfort Food.

You know about the auto insurance companies that boast about their low premiums on national television, radio and social media. They really want you to internalize their messages. The truth of the matter, though, is that there may be a misconception about what they mean. "Replace your current coverage with ours," they proclaim, "and you'll find savings on your auto insurance!" Or "Allow us ten minutes and we will present you with a cheaper rate than others." The real facts indicate that most vehicle drivers will not get any savings with a policy switch to a direct insurance company. This is because no dependent company has the wherewithal to offer any other coverage than their own. The shimmer of a cheap quote can actually be the mask covering an increased insurance deductible and less liability coverage. In order to underscore this important lesson, we bring you this actual narrative involving someone who decided to go with an independent agency's ability to locate tailored car insurance for him. A motorist who had previously been insured through one of these highly advertised dependent companies that promote 'cheaper rates' decided to go with an independent agency known for their impeccable customer service. Following a review of this man's 'cheap' auto policy, the insurance specialist discovered some serious gaps in coverage. Understanding this could cause serious problems if the insured should ever be involved in a car accident, she went to work, looking through the many policies offered through her company's network of providers. She pinpointed an excellent plan that covered the gaps and had an attached competitive low rate. The customer was satisfied with the find and left with a fresh peace of mind due to his newly acquired policy. As fate would have it, it was not long afterwards that this insured was involved in a car crash that left his vehicle in a totaled condition. Because the other driver was at fault in this collision, it was assumed that the other driver's insurance company would pay for the damages. But there was one major snag to this. The other insurance company offered to pay an amount that was far below the totaled car's worth. It was then that the new policyholder whose car had been totaled decided to call his new company. The insurance company gave him no hassle, no problems. Instead, they mailed him a check made out to the amount that genuinely represented the worth of his car, three thousand dollars above what the at fault driver's insurance company offered! Guaranteed: the happy ending to this true-to-life story would have been very different if that 'cheap premium' policy with gaps in coverage would have been in place.

Do you have the right car insurance? Well, many people think that it is a must to have the right car insurance. It will be better if you get the best one with cheap auto insurance. While most people know whether they have liability, collision or comprehensive coverage, some people pay much attention to their insurance coverage until after they have been in an accident, the others just do not really care about it. Shopping for car insurance is an important planning topic that is often overlooked since most teenagers are added to mom and dad's insurance policy when they first get behind the wheel and then later shop for the least expensive policy when they have to the pay the bill on their own. In this article, we will be discussing car insurance coverage and so you will get some tips to help you get the most for your money. Cheap auto insurance has two primary benefits. The first one is protecting your assets and the second one is protecting your health. Getting the proper coverage is the first step in the process. These are the basic types of coverage with which most people are familiar: 1. Liability: This coverage pays for third-party personal injury and death-related claims, as well as any damage to another person's property that occurs as a result of your automobile accident. 2. Collision: This coverage pays to repair your car after an accident. It is required if you have a loan against your vehicle because the car isn't really yours - it belongs to the bank, which wants to avoid getting stuck with a wrecked car. 3. Comprehensive: This coverage pays for damage incurred as a result of theft, vandalism, fire, water, etc. If you paid cash for your car or paid off your car loan, you may not need collision or comprehensive coverage. In addition to the coverage listed above, other optional coverage types include the following: a. Full Tort/Limited Tort: Your insurance will be reduced by a few dollars if you give up the right to sue when you get an accident. However, giving up your rights is rarely a smart financial move. b. Medical Payments/Personal Injury Protection: Personal injury protection pays the cost of medical bills for the policyholder and passengers. If you have good health insurance coverage, this may not be necessary. c. Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage: This type provides for medical and property damage coverage if you are involved in an accident with an uninsured or underinsured motorist. d. Towing: Towing coverage pays for a tow if your vehicle cannot be driven after an accident. If you are a member of an automobile service, or if your vehicle comes with roadside assistance provided by the manufacturer, this coverage is unnecessary. e. Glass Breakage: Some companies do not cover broken glass under their collision or comprehensive policies. In general, this coverage is not worth the long-term cost. f. Rental: This insurance option covers the cost of a rental car, but rental cars are so inexpensive that it may not be worth paying for this coverage.
