Come here, my little bites of yumminess! These blackened chicken fingers are scary good. Scary as in there’s no way I was able to control myself around them. Pick up one, dunk it in my favorite dipping sauce, devour. Repeat.

If you’re a fan of the spicy like I am, I highly recommend adding more of the blackened seasoning. And for even more of that great flavor, dust the chicken fingers with a bit more of the seasoning right after they come out of the fryer.

And yes, this recipe also makes great blackened chicken nuggets!

Blackened Chicken Fingers

I’m a big fan of adding seasonings (and not just salt and pepper) to my flour when I am making fried goodies like these blackened chicken fingers. You’ll often find me adding Old Bay (crazy good on fried chicken!), cayenne pepper, or even any ole mix I find in the pantry.
