"I haven't tried this recipe but I make one that is similar I found in a Taste of Home Cookbook. You use Ranch Dressing instead of the egg whites as a dip before the bread crumbs and my son loves them. I gave the recipe to friends at work and their kids also loved them."

"Very good and very easy = very important when you're a busy mom! The only difference I made with this was I made chicken tenders instead of chicken nuggets so I had to cook it longer."

"Delicious, way better than the restaurant nuggets, and very easy! I floured the chicken cubes before dipping in the egg white. It makes the breading stick better, but you may have to use an extra white, since the flour seems to soak up more."

"I also tried a gluten-free version by crushing a mixture of rice chex and corn chex, plus dried parsley and Mrs. Dash seasoning for chicken. Very good!"
