  • Incredible!
    My family raved about it! Works really well with chicken tenders when they go on sale. One note: I use seasoned panko rather than bread crumbs; kind of the "extra crispy" version. Thanks for sharing; I make this a lot! - 10/22/10

  • Very Good
    Everyone but my son (who will not eat anything) loved it. Too high in sodium to eat often, but still delicious. - 3/4/09
