Crispy Oven-Baked Chicken Fingers with Zesty Caesar Dip

A wholesome crispy coating and a tasty sauce made with the goodness of Milk give this dinner favourite a healthy make-over. Serve with plenty of raw veggie sticks on the side.

Tips:

Crisp crackers such as Wheat Thins work best. You'll need about 3 cups (750 mL) crackers. Make crumbs in a food processor or place crackers in a resealable plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin.

For the Adventurous: Add 1/4 tsp (1 mL) cayenne to Milk for coating mixture, and add 1/2 tsp (2 mL) anchovy paste and 1 tbsp (15 mL) chopped drained capers to sauce with garlic.

1-1/2 cup (375 mL) finely crushed crisp whole wheat crackers

1 lb. (500 g) boneless skinless chicken breasts

¼ cup (50 mL) all-purpose flour

2 clove garlic, minced

¼ tsp (1 mL) pepper

2 Tbsp (30 mL) freshly squeezed lemon juice
