I would give this 4.5 stars if I could! It's really great! I just had to add more seasoning for my taste (onion powder,paprika, and alittle more garlic and salt) but GREAT turn out I love them! Great to serve with some veggies on the side! Thank you!

Wow!! Everyone needs to try this delicious low calorie dish! Absolutely amazing! I just cut the chicken breasts in half, instead of making nuggets. And I added a few seasonings-accent, onion powder, and season salt. I doubled the recipe first time trying it and baked in 13x9 greased glass baking dish at 400 for thirty minutes flipping three times. Very moist and yummy! My brother (who never cooks) asked for the recipe to give to his wife! lol Definately a people pleaser!

We liked this as a quick healthy meat choice. Still felt it was a little bland - next time will add more garlic, and paprika and chili powder. This is a keeper.
