    For kids

    These are a little spicy - if serving to young kids, you can leave out the dried crushed chillies and black pepper.

    Altered ingredient amounts. this was a good recipe, but was not kid freindly. If you would like it kid freindly delete the chillies and half the black pepper. They tasted great. So enjoy.  -  18 Jul 2008


    Altered ingredient amounts. These turned out so moist, tender, and yummy, with just the right amount of crisp-ness on the outside. I was worried they would dry out from the high cooking temp, but they were perfect. Used only 2 chicken breasts and almost didn't have enough breadcrumb mixture. I omitted the veggie oil and they were perfect!  -  18 Jul 2008


    These are really easy, fast and yummy! The only problem I had was that they didn't get very crispy, but I may have undercooked them a few minutes in an attempt to keep them from getting OVER done. My 2 year old LOVES them!  -  18 Jul 2008
