      Sorry, but this was quite bland for us. I made as directed except halving the recipe. I did bake it, which may've made the difference. Definitely needs more seasoning--would add at least twice the chili powder. We had to eat it with barbecue sauce to help add flavor. Thanks for posting though.

      This was ok for us. I do like the texture of the cornmeal coating, but it was just kinda bland tasting to us even though I followed the measurements. I also baked mine for a healthier option. Made for Make My Recipe Zaar Tag Game 2011.

      This resulted in a pretty interesting experiment. One cup of cornmeal isn't enough to double dip one pound of tenders. As I began to deplete the cornmeal mixture, I added dried breadcrumbs with about 1/2 and 1/2 of each to coat the remaining fingers using only one dip. A taste test of 4 people unanimously concluded the combo cornmeal/breadcrumb coating was superb. Made for Everyday Is A Holiday
