Reviews for Almond Chicken Strips
"Love it!! I made it for my parents who are picky eaters and my 2 year old and there was none left! They can't wait for me to make it again."
"The recipe should have been published with 4-1/2 teaspoons sherry or broth and will be updated soon."
"There's no way 1 1/2 tsp. sherry or broth will stir smoothly into 1/4 c. cornstarch! I'll try a little more liquid. Wish me luck!"
"I made these for a party for a friend coming home from Iraq. Everyone loved them! They were easy to make and tasted awesome!"
