Rated 5 out of 5 by from Restaurant Quality These were so simple and easy to make. Tasted like we sat down to a gourmet restaurant dinner yet I made these with my kids (8,6,&5) for the fraction of the cost it would be to dine out! Thank you TS!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Whole family loved these! These remind me of the beach and make me so happy! I made them in a freezer bag, added the flour mixture to the bag, squeezed the air out and shook to choose, added the egg mixture, shook to coat, added the coconut. Easy, yummy, and no dishes! Mine toasted up great. We also had leftovers even after my husband got seconds. And my toddler ate these!!! We dipped them in Smokey Bacon BBQ Sauce. Yum.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too many seasonings. Used the amounts of seasonings recommended, but the chicken came out very salty tasting. The salt flavor overpowered the sweetness of the coconut.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from maybe I messed up recipe I don't know - my family wasn't a fan. They were "okay" but no one was fighting for leftovers - lol! (I will say leftovers were great in a salad) I think there's too much coconut on them -- mine didn't toast up like it did in the picture. they would have been great with TOASTED coconut on them (I just used coconut out of the bag) Flavor was great but consistency was a little weird.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best chicken This is my family favorite. Could use a dippen sauce with this but my family loves these plain. Did the freezer collection and it was so easy to make after a day's work. This is a must try.
