Reviews for Chicken Bites with Apricot Sauce
"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!"
"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."
"Great Recipe .... but I substituted Chinese Mustard for the prepared mustard . Tastes great with the Apricot Preserves and gives the recipe a little Kick !"
"Where is the recipe for the Apricot Sauce?"
"You can also use hamburger instead of chicken or ground turkey...good that way too..."
