Chicken Finger Update – Already

Posted by terrepruitt on May 3, 2023

Oh, I already have an update on my Chicken Fingers post. I made them again and I doubled the recipe. So two cans of chicken, two eggs, and a little over a cup of shredded cheese. And more garlic, salt, and I added onion powder.

Then instead of trying to roll them like I did last time I just grabbed some and made it long then put it on the baking sheet and formed it there. I made them longer. So I actually only got two more – sixteen, instead of fourteen – out of the doubled ingredients.

Even though they were longer I still baked them at 400° F for 30 minutes.

Maybe the first ones should have been called Chicken Toes because they were so short.

We dipped them in ranch, pasta sauce, and a spicy lime sauce. I had made a salad and had some balsamic vinegar left in my bowl and I dipped mine in that and I actually think that is the route I will take from now on.

To me, while they turn out very crispy they are on the dry side so they need to be dipped in something. But I seriously like them a lot so I will be making them again soon!

Anyone else?


Chicken Fingers

2 cans (24 oz) of chicken
2 eggs
A little over 1 cup of shredded cheese
a lot of garlic granules
onion powder

Mix all ingredients. Shape into “fingers” as best you can. Place on parchment paper lined baking sheet and do more “shaping” if necessary then bake at 400° F for 30 minutes.

Fake Pizza

Posted by terrepruitt on July 19, 2022

You may have seen social media posts with “pizza” made with “crust” that is made from chicken. I know, it is not really pizza and it is not really crust, but it is really good. If you have seen my post about pizza dough you will understand why I love this . . . I CAN ACTUALLY DO IT. I am miserable at making pizza crust. I love pizza, but pizza dough and I don’t get along. Even when it is premade and all I have to do is roll it out. I am better at handling the dough than I was, but nowhere near good. Even my chicken crust was not that pretty. But it was tasty!


Chicken “Crust”

2 cans of chicken (about 4 cups cooked and shredded)
2 eggs
2 teaspoons garlic powder
3 teaspoons Italian Seasoning
1 teaspoon salt*
1 cup parmesan cheese

*I want to CUT the salt down

400°F 25 mins

I drained the chicken. I scrambled the eggs separately just because I wanted to, then mixed everything in with the chicken.

I put it on a parchment-paper-lined pan, and spread it out to as thick as I wanted it. Then baked it in the oven for 25 minutes at 400°F.

Top with your favorite toppings and put back in the oven . . . . to melt the cheese or cook the toppings, if necessary.


I put pizza sauce, mozzarella, and cooked sausage on ours. I think any pizza topping will work.

Some people might not be able to tell the difference if you don’t tell them. But some will.  It was not the kind of “pizza” you can pick up and eat with one hand . . . although, one video I saw it showed that, mine did not do that.

I think since it is NOT actually pizza with a bread dough crust any number of flavors mixed in with chicken and then with toppings to “match” would be good. Taco seasoning mixed in then top it with tomatoes, cheese, and olives would be good. A Greek themed one. So many things could be done, just like you can do so many things with “real” pizza.  This is just another way to have something different for dinner.  A way to get that pizza-like taste without the crust.

What do you think?
