"What a great idea. This is so simple and my 13 YO granddaughter loves chicken fingers and tacos. Using frozen prepared chicken fingers made for a quick meal."

"AMAZING! My husband requests that this be made at least once a week...I use egg whites from a carton to make it lower fat, and some cajun seasonings for the breading to make it spicy : ) I gave this recipe to a friend and her family begs her to make it all the time too!!!"
