  1. Love this!!!! If you were to use chicken strips, how long on baking time??? Thanks so much!!!!

  2. This reminds me of the fabulous fried chicken served at the famous Pirate House in Savannah Ga. They have a delicious honey and pecan glaze drizzled over their chicken. I plan to make this very soon.

  3. Works better if you dip the chicken in plain greek yogurt mixed with the honey. Super juicy.

  4. I will be looking forward to preparing your wonderful recipes.

  5. Do you cover with foil or leave uncovered?

  7. Can i use regular breadcrumbs instead of Corn Flakes???

  8. I use the same coating and baking approach using a blend of honey & spicy brown mustard – just an extra layer of flavor
