"My husband and I really liked this but it was too spicy for my teen. We'll just have to make without him. Only adjustment I would make would be for less canola oil."

"Really liked the taste! Used Tyson frozen chicken tenders prepared according to directions in oven transferred to stove top skillet following rest of recipe to complete. Used cheeses on hand-mozzarella / cheddar. Really quick after working all day! About 1/2 hour total. Hubby loved the spicey kick."

"YUM! I made this the other night! I pulled out the leftovers and snacked on them while I made dinner last night. I just couldn't get enough. I used the medium wing sauce since I'm not a spicy person & I also used panko bread crumbs (Japanese bread crumbs that have WAY more substance than traditional bread crumbs). The panko bread crumbs made the chicken nice & crunchy. I'll scale back the cheese next time-too much for me & I'll probably try adding some crumbled blue cheese on top for a more traditional take on the whole buffalo style chicken. SOOO glad I tried this one!!"

"This chicken is amazing! I wouldn't change a thing. Served it with cooked carrots and a potato with butter and sour cream. The chicken is slightly spicy but the cheese on the chicken and the sour cream on my potato toned it down a little. My family ate it and said I could make it again. I definitely will because it was quick, easy, and delicious! Leftovers warmed up good too. This recipe is a keeper!"

"Wonderful recipe! I used tenderloins in place of the breast halves, and also used milk in place of egg. Finally I used monterey jack cheese in place of provolone/mozzarella. Great recipe, I am making it again this week!"

"The whole family loved the chicken and the accompanying Sweet Cucumber salad. Next time I will leave off the cheeses...everyone said it didn't need it. I'm also thinking that if I cut the chicken in smaller pieces, this would be a great appetizer."
