I cut the recipe down for just the two of us. It was super tender on the inside and a nice coating on the outside. We had sweet potato fries to go with it. Yummy!

I made these into chicken fingers...they didn't crisp up like I was hoping but that may be due to cooking them a shorter period of time...we did enjoy the flavor...made for "Alphabet" tag game...
