MY REVIEW

These are nice and tender. I will be making them again. I followed the recipe exactly and I had quite a few extra crumbs. I think you could use 1 1/2 lbs of chicken for this amount of crumbs.

I'm the cook at a busy daycare center and I found all the children, from toddlers to middle-schoolers, loved this healthier version of one of their favorite foods.

Good but bland. Next time I will add Tabasco to the ranch and crushed red pepper to mix.

My husband is one of the pickiest eaters around. When he told me to keep this recipe around, I knew I found a great one!
