"I followed this recipe to a "T" with the exception that I wrapped the chicken in nun stick foil for two hours at 275 until read 165. I make my own buttermilk."

"I made this recipe today. It was great. I will make it again. I wish people who don't like the nutritional facts just keep it to themselves. You don't have to try the recipe. We do have common sense. The review is if you like the taste or don't like the taste. Thanks."

"This sounds very good, but why is the serving size listed as 14 ounces? That seems like a lot of chicken and the calorie and fat count is far too high for my intake."
