This is great and a real kid pleaser. The creole mustard sauce sets off the sweetness of the chicken just right. DH saw a demonstration of the recipe on an early morning show and searched the recipe out for me.

I liked this a lot! The breading was sweet and crunchy! As far as the meat itself, even with extra spices in the flour, the chicken was moist but a bit on the bland side. I did make a sweet honey mustard dip to compliment the crunchy sweetness of the tenders & this seemed to give the meat the punch it needed to spruce up the taste. I couldn't make the Creole dip since I was lacking a few ingredients but the hm ended up going with the meat fine...I would definitely make this again :) Only took away 1 star because the meat was bland & needed something extra, otherwise this recipe is a keeper ;)
