You would never know this recipe was healthy! It was terrific plus easy. The ings. are in most pantry. Next time I make this recipe I'll use garlic powder instead of garlic salt. Also, I'll not salt the chicken, for my personal taste I prefer lite salt. Carol

These were tasty. A lot of work and probably won't replace my usual nugget recipe, but very nice none the less. Thanks!
