I let my chicken get a little too done but you couldn't even taste the burnt part! The gravy was excellent on my mashed potatoes. I thought the breading on the chicken would get soggy and taste gross but it was great. I'll definetely make this again!

We just finished eating this and it's a good thing I made extra or I'd have nothing to eat for lunch tomorrow! I didn't bother with simmering in the bouillon water, so we just had them as chicken tenders! They were crispy and we served with a variety of dipping sauces. This is a healthy alternative to fast food, because we used all white-meat chicken and fried in olive oil. Yum!

The best way I have found to make chicken like this is to dip the washed and dried chicken in egg, then roll in Panko (or Japanese style) bread crumbs instead of flour and cereal, salt and pepper - and the most amazing ingredient is to fry these in coconut oil! I know you think I'm crazy..., but it isn't sweet, it gives these lovely chicken tenders a new twist in taste!! Don't knock it til you try it. You may have to go to a Whole Foods type store to find the coconut oil, it is worth the trouble and cost!

This recipe tasted great, but it was terribly difficult to keep the chicken from getting a little soggy! Maybe I did something wrong. I gave it a 4 for taste because it was definitely delicious. :)
