Easy Chicken Strips

I came up with these one night when I was looking for easy chicken strip recipes. They make great appetizers, especially when served with barbecue or sweet-and-sour sauce for dunking. I’ve been told they’re restaurant-quality. —Crystal Sheckles-Gibson, Beespring, Kentucky

    My husband and I really enjoyed these. Easy to put together. Mess was cleaned up before they came out of the oven. I do think that I will add my seasoning after I get them on the baking sheet next time. There will be a next time.

    Fantastic recipe! I used Panko (bread crumbs) instead of cornflakes and it was really delicious! Tastes exactly like McDonalds but better.

    I thought these were just okay; I did not like the dryness of the coating and felt it was somewhat bland. It was definitely edible, just not my favorite.

    Very quick, and easy to make. The cornflakes gave the chicken a nice, crunchy coating. My daughter even liked them! Next time, I might add some garlic to the coating for a little bit of zip, but it's good as is, too!

    Very easy and it was a hit, but I made the following changes:I did it dipped in flour, then butter, then bread crumbs (I didn't have corn flakes).After the strips were on the baking sheet I sprinkled with salt, pepper, garlic, and Montreal chicken spices. I never find there's enough spice and I never feel there's enough when pre-mixed in the crumbs. I don't know how much I used, I just shook the spices over the chicken.

    Pretty tasteless. Seemed too coated with dry taste of corn flakes.

    I am not so sure what makes people give this recipe 5 stars. It is average. My family of six ate them, but no one raved - that's for sure.
