The Baskits in Homewood takes home the prize for the best chicken fingers in Birmingham, according to the Birmingham News' "Favorite Chicken Fingers" contest.
A panel of nine judges determined the winner, based on reader nominations and taste tests. Paul Shunnarah told the paper that the secret is "a good chicken tender is not only about the sauce. If you taste one of our chicken tenders, it's flavored, it's marinated. We do all of that from scratch."
The silver medal went to Tavern on the Summet, the bronze to Kairos Kafe. The readers' choice winner went to the Dairy Queen in Alabaster, which still batters and breads its chicken fingers by hand (one of the few DQs to still do so in the country.)
