Reviews for Christmas Day Chicken
"The flavors were really good though I had to omit the crackers due to celiac. The cook time on these are way too long as well."
"Very, very good recipe! I cut the breasts into quarters and tenderized them with a meat mallet. And I cooked them in a pan with a rack, which kept the crumb coating even and crispy. Also very tasty warmed over the next day."
"Sunday dinners my husband's family gathers for dinner after church. We each take turns making the main dish and I made this and it went over pretty well. I needed more than 2 cups of cracker crumbs, and i did substitute some of the "salts" for powders, but all in all it was easy to make and people liked it."
"So good, perfect for a large extended family and having guests over! I would make it again!"
"This recipe sounds delicious, but 16 servings is too much. I would halve the ingredients for 8 servings and quarter the ingredients for 4 servings. I believe this would work out fine. I will let you know when I try it."
"recipe too large. How about a smaller version."
"Powders work just fine. Keep seasoning salt though....sub the reast for powers. Use about half the amountif subbing ground celery powder for celery salt"
"yep. buttermilk works...use less."
