"This is an all-time favorite of our family! I use less than half of the mayonnaise and stir the chicken strips into it."

"These were pretty good. I didn't get a lot of sesame flavor, so maybe I should have toasted the seeds. I used chicken tenders, and they were nice and crispy. I didn't make the sauce since there was enough mayo in the recipe already. I sprayed my baking sheet and didn't have any trouble with them sticking."

"This was a great recipe! For the reviewer who said the chicken sticks, may I suggest spraying the baking sheet with a little Pam (olive oil works well) Just a very small amount. I did it both ways (with and without) and both times this recipe was delicious!"

"I found this recipe on your site and my son attempted it for one of his catered parties. The coating stuck to the pans and very little of the coating remained on the chicken. Did not look good. chicken did taste good, though."

"This is one of my kids' favorite ways to eat chicken. I adjust the amount of mayo to about half--just enough to cover the strips otherwise the coating will fall off and I don't want the extra fat. We love it!"
