Method

  1. For salsa, place all ingredients except chicken in a food processor or blender and cut to a rough chop. Chill for at least 4 hours before serving.
  2. To make herbed chicken fingers, bread chicken tenderloins with Italian breadcrumb mixture and fry at 350°F for 3 to 4 minutes, or until golden brown. If using a prebreaded chicken tenderloin, dust with an Italian seasoning blend and Parmesan cheese as soon as tenderloins are removed from the fryer.
