One of my mom's favorite chicken recipes used fresh sage. Her version was smothered with gravy, but we like these panko-crusted tenders as they are. —Deb Perry, Traverse City, Michigan

"I've never had much luck with fried chicken, so I was relieved to finally find an easy recipe that tasted fabulous. I used Italian seasoned panko crumbs for some added spice. I followed the rest of the recipe to a T, and they cooked perfectly! I will definitely make these again soon"
