- Dip each piece of chicken, one at a time, into the egg whites, then dredge in flour, then re-dip in the egg whites, then dredge in the rice krispies. Place on rack on baking sheet. Bake for 15 - 20 minutes until cooked through.
- For sauce:.

- Serve chicken with sauce.
I really enjoy chicken breasts in many ways, so this recipe was a curiousity for me & caught my interest! I pretty much followed the recipe, but, as suggested in another review, I did cut back on the amount of tarragon! We liked the crunchy coating of rice krispies & would happily make this again, sauce & all! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my groupmates in the Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #37]
This contest recipe stood out from all the others for me. I thought the use of the contest ingredients was ingenious. Although my recipe did not turn out (my own fault) the sauce was very good. At first I forgot to add the mascarpone (picture) and it just tasted good, but once I added the mascarpone the sauce was delicious.
I really liked this recipe a lot. The crunch from the krispies really gave this recipe a great twist. The tarragon was a bit over powering, so next time I will reduce the amount a lot. The sauce was okay, not something I usually would make but I'm glad I tried it.
