This was very tasty! A little on the salty side, which is perfect for my taste! I skipped on the cilantro (Ick!), and ended up using the entire packet of taco seasoning-divided between the sauce and breading. I did have trouble with the oil in the dressing separating from the sauce (I used Kraft buttermilk Ranch) but I think that was because I cooked it too long/hot...It looked a little funky and glumpy but it still tasted fantastic!! This is going into my 'Every day Favorites' cookbook!! Thank you for posting!!

This was great! I tripled the recipe to make enough for my and I admit I left out the Cilantro but just because I do not like it. My grandson even ate seconds and he is a real picky eater.

DH & I thought this dish was ok, but it's not something I would plan on making again. Don't get me wrong - we liked it and if someone made it for me I would most certainly eat it without hesitation - it's just not something I will make very often.
