Chicken fingers, also known as chicken tenders, chicken tendies, chicken goujons, chicken strips or chicken fillets, are chicken meat prepared from the pectoralis minor muscles of the animal. These strips of white meat are located on either side of the breastbone, under the breast meat, sometimes just pulverized chicken flesh. (pectoralis major). They may also be made with similarly shaped pieces cut from chicken meat, usually the breast.
Chicken fingers are prepared by coating chicken meat in a breading mixture and then deep frying them, in a manner similar to the preparation of schnitzel. Chicken fingers are a common snack in the U.S.
