Chicken Fingers in lemon butter sauce

chicken fingers…………Who would say lemon butter sauce is only great for fish such as grilled salmon, blue marlin and fish fillets. It is also great with chicken. Again this recipe is made banquet style. For recap, I worked before in a very busy buffet restaurants where every meat is being fried – flour coated and salt seasoned meat such as chicken, pork and fish. The only thing will be different is in the sauces. The chef just tossed the sauce and select from these fried meat dishes. This one is a flour coated chicken fingers served with a lemon butter sauce………………….Did you know that lemon butter sauce is mainly made with butter and lemon itself. Butter is a great source of Vitamins E and K.  Butter is also an anti-oxidants that protect against free radical damage and anti-oxidants that protect against weakening arteries. Lemon – believed to lowers blood pressure and increases the levels of HDL (good cholesterol). Lemon is found to be anti-carcinogenic which lower the rates of colon, prostate, and breast cancer.
