Chicken Fingers

5 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 cup plain yogurt
1 tsp kosher salt
6–8 grinds of fresh ground pepper
1 Tbsp grainy mustard
½ tsp hot sauce (or more if you like)
1 box of crackers, smashed into crumbs or 2 cups of panko
Whole almonds
Red food colouring

1. Rinse the chicken under cold water and pat dry. Slice each breast into strips and set aside.
2. Combine the yogurt, salt, pepper and mustard in a bowl. Add the chicken and allow to marinate for a minimum of 30 minutes.
3. Preheat the oven to 400°F. While the chicken is resting, remove all of the crackers from the packaging; place them in a large re-sealable bag and pound with a rolling pin until a rough crumb remains.
4. Dredge the chicken into the crackers and coat all sides well. Place on a baking sheet and repeat with the remaining chicken. Bake for 15 minutes, or until cooked through and crackers turn golden brown.
5. While the chicken is cooking, use a clean paintbrush and apply the red food colouring to the almonds. Set aside.
6. Remove the chicken strips from the oven. Apply a small amount of ketchup to the back of each almond and press one into the thin end of each chicken strip.
7. Serve with a bowl of ketchup.
