"Outstanding! Easy and fast to make. Great with BBQ sauce."
"very tasty and not fried! I had double the amount of chicken tenders so I doubled the breading ingredients. No need, the original recipe makes plenty. Very tender and will make again!"
"These were delicious. I put them on a spinach salad with strawberries and more pecans. Then I made TOH's makeover spinach salad dressing to serve on top. Great recipe. Reheating leftovers in the toaster oven is a must. They didn't hold up too well in the microwave."
