Menu Description:Golden brown, chicken breast strips coated with crispy Japanese panko breadcrumbs with the extra crunch of toasted sesame seeds and tossed in our famous Jack Daniel's sauce.”

Although the original recipe is made from sliced chicken breasts, you may consider using the less chewy tenderloins in this kitchen copy. Packs of fresh chicken tenderloins are sold in most markets and you can also find bags of them in the freezer section. I’m a big fan of the more tender meat in the tenderloins, especially when it comes to chicken fingers. The breading here is a simple combination of flour and panko (or Japanese bread crumbs). When the chicken fingers are done frying, gently toss them in the Jack Daniel’s glaze made from my recipe here, and you’ve got a great appetizer than can serve a half dozen finger food fanatics.

I have tried other clones over the years and was surprised to see one listed here, as Todd usually has the best clones so I bought the book. This is the best clone I have tried. The breading is dead on and the sauce very close and just as good as the original. I will be making this again for sure!

This sounded so good we decided to make a triple batch. We didn't think about how long it would take for such a large amount to reduce. But boy was it worth the wait!! Everyone loved these at dinner and they are even better the next day in a salad! We thought we were being super smart by using roasting elephant garlic since we needed so much. Don't do this! It takes hours and ends up being stringy instead of becoming a paste.
