    I thought this was a very great base recipe. I used marinatedchicken breasts and cut them across the grain into 2 inch strips. <br/><br/>I seasoned the cornmeal and parmesan with salt, cracked black pepper, onion powder and garlic powder and mixed with a fork. I then tossed the chicken strips individually into the mixture and lay them out on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper. <br/><br/>Cooked 14 minutes total, flipped them halfway through. I really enjoyed this. I liked that I can essentially make chicken strips at home and control the ingredients. For the kid in me, I served with 2 tb ketchup mixed with 1 tsp apricot jam and 1/4 tsp vinegar. Thanks for sharing!

    We didn't LOVE these. They were OK, very bland as written. Needs some garlic & paprika for starters. I don't think we'll making these again.

    Easy and delicious! We dipped them in egg to ensure the coating stuck. I don't see any reason to buy chicken nuggets when these are so easy. Thanks!

    Yummy! These were really easy to make, and very versatile (depending on what extra seasonings you use). A very healthy way to make chicken nuggets. And gluten free, too! I think I might have scared my downstairs neighbors when I was pounding the chicken with a rolling pin. But that's not enough to stop me from making these again!
