My Changes to the Recipe:
These changes were either made because of convenience or to make the recipe healthier:
-Chobani Fat free yogurt, instead of mayo (This worked great. It cut out a lot of fat and added ~9gm of protein!)
-I didn't use walnuts or lemon juice
-EVOO instead of canola oil
-Kraft 1/3 less fat grated Parmesan, instead of freshly grated
TIP:It was difficult for me to find Wheat Germ. I finally found it in the organic section next to flour and flax seed. There is just enough breadcrumb mix, so don't go over board on your first tenders. There is more than enough dipping sauce, I thought about thinning some of it to make a dijon salad dressing. These were AWESOME and I couldn't believe they weren't fried. This recipe would be great on a salad or paired with a small salad and side veggie.
