Fried Chicken Fingers

In his series Marcus' Kitchen, chef Marcus Samuelsson shares dozens of recipes that prove "American" cuisine is really a delicious melting pot that draws upon flavors from all over the world.

In this video, Marcus shows his twist on classic chicken fingers. He soaks chicken thigh strips in coconut milk before breading and cooking them -- the marinade adds moisture and a slightly tropical flavor. Panko breadcrumbs make for an extra-crispy coating and a dash of chili powder and spritz of lemon or lime juice punch things up.
