“I came up with these one night when I was looking for a new, fast way to serve chicken. They make great appetizers, especially when served with barbecue or sweet-and-sour sauce for dunking. I’ve been told they’re restaurant-quality.” Crystal Sheckles-Gibson - Beespring, Kentucky

"Very easy and it was a hit, but I made the following changes:

I did it dipped in flour, then butter, then bread crumbs (I didn't have corn flakes).
After the strips were on the baking sheet I sprinkled with salt, pepper, garlic, and Montreal chicken spices. I never find there's enough spice and I never feel there's enough when pre-mixed in the crumbs. I don't know how much I used, I just shook the spices over the chicken."

"Pretty tasteless. Seemed too coated with dry taste of corn flakes."

"I am not so sure what makes people give this recipe 5 stars. It is average. My family of six ate them, but no one raved - that's for sure."

"This was awesome, but I did change it up a bit to use what I had in the pantry: substituted cornflakes for unseasoned Panko breadcrumbs & substituted the season salt for salt, garlic powder, chili powder & parsley flakes. Also, I mixed several drops of hot sauce into 1/2 c. melted butter."

"My family of five gobbled these up! Even my picky eaters! The corn flakes kept them nice and crisp. The breading stayed on and was easy to dip. This is now a regular on my menus! Just a tip, I found that about 3 1/2 cups uncrushed cornflakes made about 1 1/4 crushed cornflakes. YUMMY!!"
