5. Every Chicken Finger is Unique
First you are brought into the world and introduced to the chicken fingers at fast food restaurants. They are small and wimpy – but salty in a way that piques your interest and primes you for a life of chicken fingers.

4. Chicken Fingers Are a Good Excuse to Eat Condiments
Chickens don’t actually have fingers, but some genius in history designed a food product with the ideal shape for dipping into sauce. Barbeque is the hands-down ideal destination for this dip, but it doesn’t end there. (Pro tip: McDonald’s has a new Sweet Chili Sauce.)
3. Chicken is a Fairly Chill Type of Meat

When you order chicken fingers, you know you’re about to get a fried spread of edibles that your body has been familiarized with regularly since age 2. It’s not like ordering a curry dish, where you could end up with a soupy mess that gives you jalapeno heartburn. Plus, if your chicken fingers are sub-par, you can just douse them in ketchup.
