Chicken Mozzarella Sticks

Why choose between chicken fingers and mozzarella sticks when you can have them both?


  • 1 1/2 pounds ground chicken
  • 3 tablespoons Italian seasoning, divided
  • Salt, to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 16 ounces mozzarella, cut into strips
  • Oil, for frying
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • Marinara sauce, for dipping


  1. In a bowl, season ground chicken with 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning and salt and pepper. Oil hands. Working with about 4 tablespoons of the mixture at a time, use your hands to form a rectangular patty. Place one mozzarella strip in the center, and fold the chicken mixture around the cheese to close. Set aside on a plastic wrap-lined dish. Continue with the rest.
  2. Chill in the fridge for at least 15 minutes.
