Chicken fingers, also known as chicken tenders, chicken goujons, chicken strips or chicken fillets, are chicken meat prepared from the pectoralis minor muscles of the animal.[citation needed] These strips of white meat are located on either side of the breastbone, under the breast meat, sometimes just pulverized chicken flesh. (pectoralis major).[1][2] They may also be made with similarly shaped pieces cut from chicken meat, usually the breast.[3]

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.[4] Chicken fingers are a common snack in the U.S..[5]
