MY REVIEW

"The Chicken turned out alright, but we thought the sauce was terrible. Found out not a huge fan of apricot preserves. Oh well, many more recipes to try!"

MY REVIEW

"I made these as tenders instead of bites. Took a lot more cornflakes than the recipe asked for and a lot less egg and milk. But they turned out quite tasty and crunchy. Keeper."

"These are easy and delicious. They work well using panko bread crumbs, too. I sometimes switch up the sauce by omitting the mustard and mixing the preserves with salsa for a little kick."
