I saw Emeril prepare this on The Rosie O'Donnel Show as a kid friendly recipe. I think it is grown-up friendly too!

Very tasty, but needed a lot more cornflakes to even coat the chicken much less make a decently solid coating like in the picture. It's a lot of sauce for that much chicken as well.

I saw that a lot of the reviews were good so I figured I would give it a try. You need 3-4 cups of corn flakes and I think they should be ground finer and I think it called for a little too much BBQ sauce as it was clumping the corn flakes together in the bag making it hard to coat the nuggets. Half way through I gave up and breaded the rest with bread crumbs. The flavor was just "ok". Overall I am not impressed and will not make these again.

The kids wouldn't eat these because they said they tasted like dry cereal. My husband and I agreed. They seemed to lack flavor.
