Beginner cooks - This is a great, great recipe! So quick, so easy, and SO DELICIOUS. I used to bread chicken tenders and fry them, and was never quite happy with how they came out. This recipe is much healthier, much less messy, and the tenders come out really delicious. To the crushed cornflakes, I added about a 1/2 a teaspoon of garlic powder, a 1/4 teaspoon of paprika and 1/2 cup of crushed Ritz crackers. SO YUMMY!
What's not to love, these are great. I used parchment paper to line my baking pan with. And I added about 1/3 cup of Parmesan cheese to the cornflake mixture. I also used chicken breast that I cut into strips. You won't be able to eat just one!
Although I added more seasonings, we really enjoyed this recipe. No one wanted the marinara sauce so I made a honey/mustard/mayo dipping sauce. Good stuff!
This was pretty good -- I didn't drizzle the butter over top of them and they still turned out nicely... very crunchy but it is a nice change for chicken. I also used regular chicken breasts, and cooking them for 20 minutes is perfect. I also added some spices to the crust mixture -- seasoned pepper and cajun spices.
Not your typical greasy chicken tender. This recipe is a gem even for a foodie like myself! I was simply looking for a recipe to satisfy my child's picky ways, but surprised the adults with the best homemade chicken nuggets. Best part...not greasy! I did slightly adjust the recipe adding freshly grated parmesan to the cereal mix, and used Special K rice cereal (ground to a fine crumb) and 1 T. poultry seasoning, cut up tenders to nugget size, and thinned the egg mixture with milk. My bite-size nuggets were ready in 10-12 minutes and were just PERFECTLY tender. This will become a standard recipe in my house.
I'm a beginner cook but this recipe still came out great. Really yummy, and fun to make.
Oh yum....You know, I was doubtful of these just because I couldn't understand how something that was so easy to whip up, could be good. Low and behold they were fantastic!! I loved that they were pleasantly crunchy and not too spicy, but if you were looking to spice things up a bit, adding your own spices would be easy as pie. Try this recipe, it's a nice change from plain ol' chicken.
Very good. Followed recipe, didn't add or subtract anything. Will definitely make this again.
