Binging with Babish: Chicken Fingers from Community

Avaldati 6 apr 2021
During my weekly re-watching of Community, I was reminded that an entire episode was dedicated to the study group's Goodfellian pursuit of chicken fingers. Needing a break after last week's culinary marathon, I jumped at the opportunity to brine some tendies in pickle juice just to see what happens. Turns out, it tastes real good! Thanks Greendale!

  • These chicken fingers are streets ahead

    • @Craig Winter Coined and minted

    • Alternate video title: I brush my knife against chicken fingers (ASMR)

    • @Travis Norman Gettin rid of the B

    • Troy and Abed in the mornin’!

    • More community pleaaaase

  • What do we do with an air fryer rather than a deep fryer?

  • Every time I watch one of your videos, I become hungry. Also, how much for your cookbook?

  • He should do an episode where he makes fried chicken with the fire flakes he made from the Avatar episode

  • Yooo I luv commmunity ! It’s in my top 10 fav shows !

  • tasting pleasantly of pickles killed the whole thing for me 🤢

  • I only counted 8 herbs and spices...😯

  • 3:36 "No, sir. This is confidence not incompetence." My school personality year-round.

  • Idk what Community is but whenever I see that name I have to do a double take because think of that one horror movie called Society

  • Babish I think the reason the deep fry method isn't on the packaging is, because while it does have the best crunch it might not heat the inside hot enough before burning the outside to get it "safe"

  • I always get that kind of Videos recommended when its am or sum

  • at chick-fil-a they get the chicken frozen and pre-brined, its also full of msg, thats why its so tasty

  • And a Bay leaf because the Slav king Boris himself willed it so

  • one day Babish is going to make a video where the only ingredient is Kusher Salt

  • I make chicken exactly how Babish does :)

  • He's the TapL of cooking

  • “My EARS FEEL WERID”, I’m never use to ASMR and it gets me shaky

  • he just relased a resteraunts secret for no reason at all with no care mad respect

  • mine wasn’t as pretty and kinda bland still cool recipe

  • Changtacular

  • try watching babish without getting hungry

  • What rhymes wîth finger?

  • Hey, if I make these, what can I do to stop my kitchen from smelling like hot oil for the next week?

  • dean - licious Awesome

  • I hunger

  • What brand of chicken fingers were the frozen ones

  • Why does the crunch sound like eating in minecraft.

  • This episode was changtastic

  • This video reminded me what Babish videos have been missing as of late, the component that when its gone you feel its absence yet cant point it out given its subtlety, trolling. Babish is a troll and I can only speak on behalf of myself here but that's what caused me to watch his videos so religiously, bring back those unwanted asmr segments and the completely not at all substitute recipes with coriander (I'm English) that merely looks and tastes like parsley but is in fact coriander. Ill still watch every upload regardless like I previously said however that edgy troll is what will keep me coming back hungry no pun intended.

  • I can’t believe you actually did this. Community is so underrated.

  • this was in my reccomended while i was watching this exact episode on another screen

  • "It is confidence, not incompetence" Babish its okay we all make mistakes

  • If you want to do more community ones here's some suggestions. Shirley's sandwiches or her pies/pizzas from remedial chaos theory. The winter doodle from comparative religion. And troy's giant cookie from pascal's triangle revisited

  • I make this dish like everyday cuz its easy and i can eat it with like vegetable soups, but i didnt know the actually name is Chicken Fingers. I used to called chicken tenders or chicken strips

  • Ew applebees

  • What do you recommend to use in place of peanut oil(peanut allergy)?

  • Wait , was that “Crispty crunchty” a Molly Baz reference at @3:23 ?🙆🏻‍♂️

  • To be completely honest with you I wouldn't care as long as I get the chicken

  • Honestly those chicken fingers would be better if you ground them up and put em in some kind of casing. . .

  • Subway 4:33

  • night

  • Should come out similarly in an air fryer, right? Maybe drizzle a lil oil into the basket. Mostly thinking about that because I don't feel like using a ton of oil + having to clean up excess bubbly mess later lol

  • I made these last night - they were incredible!

  • Gasp you added cornstarch? You take that back

  • Why i am thinking of trailer park boys when i hear chicken fingers ?

  • have you considered ASMR? XD

  • Tested this one, but found them really mediocre. Crunch was great. Taste... well, there wasn't much there. First one from your channel that I didn't really care for. But I learned a lot making them, so it was still a win.

  • Those chicken fingers look so yummy! I wish I was eating this recipe right now because it looks like the perfect midnight snack

  • I’ve made the final recipe twice so far First time I did the minimum, brining for only 8 hours, single dipping, all the simple. Second time I brined it for the full 48 and double dipped, best chicken I’ve had and made. I know this will more than likely go overlooked but incase it isn’t and you plan on making it, the extra 40 hour wait is more than worth it.

  • special drink next

  • Who else thought the picture in the thumbnail looked like a miniature hand

  • I made these, but using an airfryer. Not nearly as crispy, but man oh man are they tasty!

  • Can you make the pineapple cake from 50 first dates!

  • Do you ever think about the chicken that he bought when it was alive? He's famous now

  • Nice recipe keep sharing thanks Your recipes are amazing. Arain Kitchen always like your recipes.

  • Any recommendation liquid to substitute instead of pickle juice?

  • I know this man didn't just make a chang joke

  • Hi, what would you say could be a kosher alternative to the buttermilk in the brine?

  • btw, had anyone told you, who is Andrej Babiš from Czech Republic?

  • I always wondered why they sold bottles of pickle juice at my local high-end deli. Now I know. And knowing is ... you know it! ... half the bottle. I drank the other half.

  • Oooo you should do pasta from master of none

  • If you dip chicken tenders in ketchup your nasty. EW🤢

  • This immediately made me watch to watch that episode.

  • I somehow managed to make it look brown and taste disgusting

  • That chicken fingers we called it CEKER and its so ngeunah pokona very delicioso komo dei with sambal mantep edun and plus with rice hedon sekali rasanya

  • legend may say its pickle brine but the ingredient list required by the fda says it's just msg

  • My right ear is feeling left out of the sensual mouth noises.

  • Gimme gimme chickie tendies...

  • Gordon Ramsey COULD NEVER

  • Leonard rated this 5 stars

  • Try marinating in a vinegar based hot sauce for hot spicy flavors.

  • You should have included a fourth method, because I am honestly curious as to how it would work with frozen chicken tenders: air fryer. Microwave, oven, deep fry, air fry... that just about covers all the bases, I think.

  • Fake! You didn’t lay your own eggs and raise your own chicks!

  • I'm sad he didn't do the Britta throw at the end.

  • About Time!

  • As someone that can’t eat peanut anything, which oils do people recommend instead?

  • We all know this is just his excuse to begin his second channel which specializes in ASMR

  • I made these for my family tonight, they were amazing!

  • No me beeing on a diet and totally regretting to watch this

  • Why can i taste this?

  • Babish at the end of the video: Eat fresh Milad wants to know your location

  • Your recipe on the website is different for the advanced chicken fingers. 🥺 Which one should I use?

  • So how is britta a vegetarian she ate chicken tenders

  • I beg of you make the outback steakhouse extreme from family guy.

  • My secret tip for anything that goes into a deep fryer is a shitload of MSG. I think it's an atrocity that it is shunned by so many youtube chefs...

  • I think it's tradition to pop on that community episode whenever you have chicken strips

  • 10/10 ASMR

  • Just seeing someone else still appreciates Community is the real prize here. Just kidding, I need to make this chicken.

  • Sorry where is this from I have changnesia

  • I just don't understand how you know all of these shows.

  • My old community college’s cafeteria had the best Chicken fingers. They tasted like ballpark food, they were amazing

  • I can't put in words how much I enjoyed this video

  • Can you use this recipe in an air fryer instead?

  • Mine didn’t come out brown! Idk what I did wrong, my crust came out as empty shells
