Awesome, awesome, awesome! My 11 year old who has suddenly discovered he "hates" chicken, absolutely loved this dish! Will be using this recipe again!!

Have made this ever since it was published in QC. I usually smush the egg and water together in a gallon ziplok bag and place chicken tenders in the bag to coat. Most of the time I use equal amounts of bread crumbs and Parmesan. Delicious, a real hit with my kids.

This was a wonderful meal!!! My children all loved it. The chicken was moist, full of flavor, & the crust stayed on great! Even IThough it was cooked in a skillet, you could cut it with a fork as if it had been in a slow cooker all day. This is a keeper!

I love when a recipe is good and easy as well. Crunchy outside, moist inside. I used what was on my shelf which was Panko style bread crumbs I seasoned with salt & pepper. I had to use more oil than called for, 2 Tbsp wouldn't coat bottom of my skillet. One tip: while browning each side, just leave it alone. It will release from pan when browned and you'll end up with a nice crust.
