MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 17, 2012

"My kids are pretty picky eaters. So I decided to make something that was somewhat normal, chicken fingers, for dinner. They scarfed it down and loved every bite. A definite do again. Served with some veggies and rice pilaf for a perfect meal."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 18, 2011

"Excellent flavor! I made this for the Xmas party and everyone loved it! Even the person who doesn't like cilantro. The dip was the best! I did add about 1 tsp more of honey since you can taste that plain yogurt just a bit too much - but that is just my tastebud! The whole thing was a hit!"
