Whole Foods Market Cookbook
by Steve Petusevsky & Whole Foods Market Team

For this Caribbean-inspired finger food, allspice, ginger, chilies, and lime create a fantastic flavor combination typical of island cuisine- This version is oven-fried, which uses less fat than traditional fried fingers. Save some of the Jamaican Jerk Sauce to use as a dipping sauce. Or try them with Cucumber Raita (page 340). These chicken fingers are also excellent as a sandwich topped with Creole Remoulade Sauce, field greens, and sliced dill pickles. Adventurous kids enjoy these as much as grown-ups do.
Serves 6


    1½ pounds chicken tenders or boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into 1 -inch-wide strips
    1/2 cup Jamaican Jerk Sauce or your favorite bottled brand
    1/2 cup buttermilk or plain yogurt

    The Crust
    1/4 cup dried bread crumbs
    1/4 cup fine cornmeal, white or yellow
    1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
    1/8 teaspoon allspice
    Pinch of cayenne pepper
    Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

    Vegetable oil for spraying chicken fingers

    Marinate the chicken in the jerk sauce and buttermilk for at least 1 hour in the refrigerator.


Preheat the oven to 400°F. In a small bowl, combine all ingredients for the crust. Gently dip the marinated fingers one at a time in the crumb mixture, shaking off any excess crumbs. Line up the lightly breaded fingers on a sheet pan, spray them lightly with the vegetable oil, and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, turning once, halfway through, to brown them evenly on both sides. Serve immediately.
