Almost everyone in my family requests this golden breaded chicken as their birthday dinner entree. I begin marinating the chicken strips early in the day to cut down on last-minute fuss.—Charlotte Baillargeon, Hinsdale, Massachusetts

Excellent! My family enjoys this recipe. Sometimes, in place of the bread crumbs I will use crushed saltines, or I'll use regular bread crumbs but add 1tsp garlic powder, 1/2 tsp. Basil, one half teaspoon smoked paprika, 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Anyway you make it, it's fantastic.

This was great! I made it with gluten-free bread crumbs and gluten-free flour. My family loved it, and my daughter who has issues with gluten was thrilled!
