MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 15, 2011

I just made these for dinner and they were delicious. Very quick and simple to prepare and I served them with deli potato salad.

This has become my husband's new favorite meal! So good and so easy. A tip to make this quicker with less cleanup is to crush the chips in a large zip bag. Once you have all of the chicken pieces coated with egg, toss them all in the bag, seal and then shake to coat the chicken in the chips. I also add a little bit of ranch dressing to the egg mixture and we drizzle the finished product with ranch. YUMMY!

This has become the recipe I'm famous for with my friend's kids. :) So easy and yummy, especially with little picky eaters.
