Toasted S’more Chocolate Fudge Ice Cream.
You guys, I am such a mess.
Well technically right now I am very clean, but that is only because I have not started cooking/baking yet.
Yesterday before I got in the shower I glanced in the mirror and just kind of laughed at myself. I mean I had food all over my clothes, my face and in my hair. You name it and I probably had it on me. Chocolate, ice cream, BBQ sauce, greek yogurt, ketchup, strawberry stains, smudged avocado, really I could go on and on.
Oh and I almost forgot the flour in my hair that makes me look like I am getting gray hair at nineteen. Oh wait, was it flour or powdered sugar. I can’t remember, it might have been both or actually come to think of it, I think it was baking soda.
Yup, it was baking soda. I had a little accident that involved a five-pound bag of baking soda. It dropped and pretty much just went everywhere. I guess I did not do such a good job of shaking it all out cause like I said, it looked like I was getting gray hairs.
Here’s the deal. I basically run around the kitchen like a crazy person all day and use my clothes as napkins. Sometimes I will be standing right next to the sink and I’ll still just wipe that little bit of peanut butter across my butt and that teaspoon of chocolate down my back.
Honestly, it is ridiculous. By the end of the day I look like a four-year who raided the kitchen and got into every last ingredient.
And no, I am not the only one in the kitchen all day. There are people coming in and out at all times. People I know, family and friends, and then sometimes people I am just meeting for the first time. Yes, it can be embarrassing. Especially when there is something smeared across my face or hardened chocolate stuck in my eyebrows.
I think I should wear an apron.
The funny thing is, that I have like five aprons and one really cute one that was way too expensive one from Anthropologie.
I feel funny wearing aprons though, I guess I just like completely ruining my clothes. Which brings me to these chicken fingers. The day I made these I manage to swipe the killer Cajun BBQ sauce all over the back of my shirt and across my chest. Really I have no idea how this happened, but I looked like I rolled in the stuff.
I mean it’s really, really good, crazy good actually. It is sweet and spicy with an awesome Cajun kick!
I would have preferred to have it in my mouth, not all over me.
Why is it that chicken fingers are so fun??
They make you feel like a kid again. Remember those days when you starve yourself playing in the pool all day and then run to the snack bar for some chicken fingers, ketchup and fries. Yeah, that was a good summer day.
These chicken finger are nothing like the ones I used to get when I was ten. Nope for one, these are baked (remember, I hate frying) and two, they’re rolled in Cajun BBQ sauce and then breaded with crunchy corn flakes and grated cheddar cheese.
Ah huh, I am serious.
You guys, these are hands down the best chicken fingers I have ever had.
They smell incredible and oh my gosh the Cajun BBQ is out of this world!! It is so good and the cheddar cheese compliments the flavors so well. Plus, everything is better with a little cheese!
Really though, these are so good and so incredibly easy.
The BBQ sauce takes ten minutes, breading the chicken takes ten minutes and then you cook um for fifteen minutes.
Done. Easy peasy meal. I love easy peasy meals, especially ones that make you feel like your ten again!

Cause being ten is awesome!
This is all most oil free and very nutritious food . I like this idea of baked chicken. This test is as good as fried one. Thanks for the recipe.
I am so glad you enjoyed this! Thank you!
This look such a wonderful chicken fingers! I must make this soon..
I hope you love this Akash!
Hi is there anything i can use to substitute the beer?
HI! Just water or chicken broth. Hope you love these!
I want to make these tonight. Are there any ingredients I can cut out and still make them delicious? Let me know if you have any suggestions. Thanks!
Honestly, the only thing you could probably leave out is the flour. Other wise everything else is needed. Unless of course there is a spice you prefer not to use like the cayenne. OH and if you don’t want to make the spicy ketchup that is obviously up to you, but we LOVED that ketchup! These are SO good. Hope you love them!
Thank you so much for coming to share at Super Saturday Show & Tell! I’d love to have you come and share again today http://www.whatscookingwithruthie.com Have a great weekend! xoxo~ Ruthie
Thank you, Ruthie!
Holy YUM!!! These look delicious!! 🙂
So these look yummy, and as long as the heat isn’t too intense, I think my kids would gobble them up if I told them they were goldfish crushed chicken fingers…two of their favorite things!!
However, I cant think of what to serve these with that isn’t a huge chore unto itself, like twice baked potatoes. I’m almost 8 mo preggo and finding motivation for fixing anything, much less multiple sides, lacking…
I served them with with rice, it is my families but favorite! But you could do frozen fries, quinoa, a super quick salad. Seriously though if your are 8 months preggo I would do the frozen fries! Kids love them and they are super easy! Alexia brand has some healthier ones, but they are a little pricy.
Totally agree with you on the whole kitchen/clothes/mess thing. I always look like I poured food all over me when I leave the kitchen! These look great!
Ha, glad I am not alone! Thanks Nessa! Love reading your daily commentes!
