"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."
