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 no idea how Todd gets these recipes. Maybe he has a gift and only has to go through several dozen iterations to nail a recipe. However, for this one I think he had an insider. This is the most EXACT copycat recipe I've ever tried. The glaze is a pain in the arse to make, but it IS the Friday's Jack Daniels sauce. I can't believe how accurate this recipe is; and I'm not exaggerating at all. Try it.

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!
