    Lainey6605's Note:

    I got this recipe from Weight Watchers magazine. It is one of Jennifer Hudson's, WW spokesperson, favorite recipes. After trying it, I can see why. The cornflake crumbs really give it that wonderful crunch. I made mine without the gravy and it was still delicious! I also used all chicken breasts. So good, you won't believe it is good for you. Points Plus Value is 8.

      This was just excellent. I added a little garlic powder to the chicken before dipping for a little extra flavor. I used chicken breast as that is what I had and used Smart Balance for the butter. I also left off the gravy for dietary reasons. Produced a very crisp and juicy chicken that we really enjoyed.

      I went down Lainey's route, and used boneless chicken breasts, which I cut into large fingers, and then followed the recipe.
      These cooked up beautifully...moist, tender and really crisp- and nobody would guess that they're actually not so bad for you either.
      I skipped the gravy ( but fully intend to try it with this soon), and we dunked our fingers into honey mustard, hot chilli, and honey chipotle bbq sauces.....fabulous finger food, that disappeared in the blink of an eye.
      A must make recipe. Made for PRMR.
