I was excited to try this, but when I first tasted it, I wasn't too impressed. I don't know what it was, but it was just kinda blah. BUT, adding a dipping sauce made a huge difference. I used an asian honey mustard, and it was awesome! I cut my chicken into strips, and cooked them for 30 minutes. Thanks for sharing!

This was very good! It took a little more cornflakes, but maybe I left them a little chunky and that caused it to measure more. I used low-fat buttermilk, which worked just fine and found that even cut into strips it took more like 35-40 minutes to cook. Thanks for sharing!
