MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 6, 2014

I agree that this could use a bit more seasoning, but the cornmeal coating was a hit with my kids and myself. I did put it under the broiler for about 5 minutes to darken the top.

I just made this for my residents at the senior home that I work in as cook. They loved it. I did not change a thing, just doubled the recipe, though I did soak my chicken overnight in buttermilk.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 9, 2013

I was very disappointed after reading all the reviews. The breading was ok. I think it could have used a little more flavor and I would have liked it to crisp up a little bit more than it did. My family ate it but we all agreed it wasn't worth making again. I will continue on my journey to find a good chicken leg recipe.

This is now my go- to recipe for "fried chicken". I took the skin off of the chicken to make it a little healthier. My family loves it!
