Kids liked this one. I couldn't find the sauté express so I used the LOL butter spread of the same flavor and added olive in to the pan. Pan fired in batches and finished off on the oven for 15 ...

I followed the recipe except I just browned the chicken in a skillet and then put it in the oven to finish cooking. Thus, didn't need as much oil! Family really liked it!

I used the recipe minus the butter. I just fried in canola oil, and it still had a good flavor. This recipe needs salt, but after I cooked and salted it, the family did enjoy!

Lots of picky eaters in my house. This one was a winner!

this was delicious! But took a lot longer to cook than the recipe said. I'll cut my tenders in half next time
