"My toddlers love them. Easy to make and it is healthier than frozen meals."
"Yeah ,its a good recipehttp://www.bewareofdrugs.com/amazing-healthy-recipes-for-kids/"
"These were ok. They dont' get very crispy, so I had to broil them a little. They could use a little more seasoning."
"Quick and easy. I would like to add if a kid is hungry enough he will eat a variety of things. Only serving what they think is all they will eat is a big mistake. Makes for a picky eater that is a pain for anyone stuck with cooking for them the rest of their life. I use pickey loosely because it gives the impression of a person with a palate for good food, wihich of course is just the opposite."
"Chicken was dry and tasteless - I even put some Italian seasoning and a little garlic powder in to kick it up - almost made it for company last week - so glad I didn't!"
