"Simple and fun to make, great to eat! Prep time includes marinating the chicken. Use matzoh meal instead of the breadcrumbs and this is good for Passover as well."

"I served these at the "appetizer" party that I hosted. After reading Dancer^s comments, I decided to triple the recipe which was a very good move. They didn't last long at all. The chicken was so flavorful and tender. Thanks for a great recipe. :-)"
"This was a very quick and delicious too! I marinated my chicken for 2 hours and cooked them in the oven for 15 minutes. They were so tender and very tasty too. I served them with french fries and had a great meal. Thanks!!"
"This is great. Baked not fried!!! Try serving with ranch dipping sauce and celery."
"This recipe is soooo easy (I used kitchen sheers to cut my chicken), quick and delicious!!! Will be making this again. I doubled the recipe, except for the pepper (I have young kids). We loved these. Thank you for a great recipe."
"What a terrific recipe! I had 3 plump chicken breasts, but still used the same amount of marinating ingredients and it worked very well. Since my two guys are not big on "spicy", I used Italian-flavored breadcrumbs instead of adding cayenne to plain ones; the result was delicious! These nuggets were gone in a flash; I should have made more. I found the recipe very easy to prepare and it was great that dinner could be on the table so quickly. It's a keeper, Mirj!"
"When I asked after the dinner party for a rating for this recipe, it was for 5 stars, everyone loved the favor and said I should have tripled the recipe instead of doubling it. These went very fast. I will be making this again and very often. Thanks again."
"I think that the success of this recipe depends on the dip you use since, by themselves, these chicken bites are a bit dry. My family experimented with several dips and each person liked something different: Caesar dressing (we don't like Ranch), melted butter mixed with hot sauce (we call it, "buffalo dip"), lemon juice, ketchup, sweet and sour sauce and bbq sauce. I did like the idea of marinating with olive oil so you wouldn't have to add oil to baking sheet. I did cut back on the pepper (kids request, not mine) and still my son thought it was too spicy to eat. All in all, a decent recipe which can be altered to your eaters' age and taste."
"A very simple, great tasting recipe! Very easy to prepare and hold for a party. The length of time marinading can be longer, mine stayed in the marinade almost half a day. With only ten minutes baking time, it was awesome. When I sent a plate out, it came back empty every time! I used cornbread crumbs and left out the cayenne, it was fabulous! I also used some on top of a caesar salad. Thanks for the great easy recipe!"
"These were pretty good. Very easy to make too. They definitely needed salt. We dipped them in honey and also applesauce, and that's what really made them good. I'll make these again, but add salt to the breadcrumbs."
"This is a very easy recipe and as all has stated gone in a flash. Very tender and with a very good taste. We like spicy next time I wll add Chipolte. Thank You for a wonderful recipe. "
"I made these 1 night last week when I didn't have much time and I wanted something that was quick but would also wow my most pick son! Good choice. While the chicken was marinading I already had a pan of your greek fries in the oven. (one of my sons favorites) the chicken turned out tender & crunchy and full of flavor. I don't do it very often but your combo made my son's and my day. Your the best! Thanks"
"I made these cause they sounded good, but we found them very dry. Used dried breadcrumbs (?) and I served them alone. maybe with a dip they would be ok. I just had them with chips and salad, and they were really "ordinary", but the chicken itself was moist, and the recipe has potential."
"Very good variation on the oven-fried chicken I often make. I agree it could use some salt. I doubled the recipe, but only used 1/2 of the cayenne. It was part of my dinner, but I can see where it would make a great appetizer. Very easy and very tasty recipe. "
"Made these for an appetizer party, and what a hit! One guest said "This is the best thing I've ever tasted!". I used Italian breadcrumbs, too, and added just a touch of garlic salt. This recipe is a definite keeper!"
"Made these for dinner tonight...they turned out really good. Dum-dum me wasn't reading the directions right, and added the cayenne pepper to the marinade before I realized it...but it didn't hurt a thing. Also, I used garlic & herb breadcrumbs (cause I was out of plain), and that only added to the great flavor. I tried to get a rating out of my hubby, but he's been too busy stuffing them in his mouth (he ate over half the batch, and I used 3 good sized breasts!!) Thanks Mirjam, for a really quick & tasty recipe."
"This was absolutely delicious! I took another reviewer's suggestion and used italian breadcrumbs instead of breadcrumbs and cayenne pepper. They were even better the next day. I took some to work and let my co-workers sample them. Everyone was asking for the recipe. This is definitely a keeper!"
"I was looking for something easy and quick to make for dinner, and these definately fit the bill. They were perfect! We tried them with several kinds of dipping sauces and our favorites were barbeque and honey mustard. I will make one comment - I tried putting the chicken in a plastic bag to marinate and then another bag to coat the chicken - what a mess! I will definitely be using bowls next time, and I can't wait until next time. Thanks for the awesome recipe Mirj!"
"Easy and delicious. They didn't last long. "
"On our first try of this recipe, we found the chicken too oily and the breading didn't stick. It was however quick and easy to make. I'll be trying it again but with the addition of a little salt and a little less garlic. A coarser bread crumb might be a better choice than the fine crumbs I used also. It was very tender."
