Dorothy, What a great recipe! My grandkids (ages 2-7) loved these!! They cleaned me out twice. I used Louisiana Hot sauce in place of tobasco to cut the heat a bit and used low fat blue cheese dressing. A keeper!
These chicken strips are so easy to make and makes ordinary chicken something special. I added some garlic powder to the cornflake crumbs, but otherwise followed the recipe to the letter. I served it with a green salad, and fresh green beens, simply wonderful. I think these would be great to put out as an appetizer as well.
One word to describe it...YUMMY! I went for the sinful method, I fried them instead of baking them. I did add half a teaspoon of grounded black pepper to my crushed conflakes on top of the salt. Didn't have fresh parsley, so I used the dried ones. Still worked really well. I did add half a bottle of frank's hot sauce instead of the Tobasco. It still wasn't really spicy, I think the blue cheese dressing, lowers the heat by quite a bit. More can be added if you like some heat. By far the best Chicken Fingers!
