    Oh wow! These chicken strips are the best. Followed the recipe exactly, but left the chicken soak in the egg mixture for a few minutes before dredging thru the breadcrumbs. Also sprayed every piece with "I Can't Believe It's Butter" before baking in addition to the melted butter drizzle. Second time I've made these and will never look for another breaded chicken recipe. Well done Uncle Bill.

    WOW, this is fantastic!!!! Soooo YUMMY!! Just made this and can't we stop eating. We loved this Sweet and Sour Sauce very much. My daughter fully used this sauce as a meat loaf at the next night. And my husband said we need to add this to weekly rotation. I squeezed a fresh orange in substitution for pineapple juice and added it. It was a splendid flavor! Uncle Bill, You are a genius definitely! I will use this recipe from now on. Thanks for a great recipe!
