Honey Ginger Soy glazed chicken fingers

Honey ginger soy glazed chicken fingers are sweet, spicy, tangy and perfect finger food / appetizer. These are so easy to make and bursting with flavor. Chicken fingers are crispy and perfectly seasoned. Honey soy glaze is absolutely delicious and pairs well with the crispy chicken fingers.
Chicken breast strips are coated with spiced flour mixture and shallow fried in the pan. Then they are tossed in sweet and spicy honey ginger soy glaze. Best served as an appetizer with fried rice and gravy.
