Reviews for Cornmeal Oven-Fried Chicken
"Very tasty chicken. I used all legs and thighs. Everyone enjoyed this. I will definitely make this again."
"Easy to make and tasty to eat."
"Delicious and easy"
"The chicken was juicy and delicious. I used italian bread crumbs, three cheese Parmesan blend, and added 2T buttermilk powder to the cornmeal mixture. I then dipped the chicken in fat free milk. I then took the 1T of butter, cut it in little pieces and put one piece on each of the 5 thighs I was using instead of drizzling them with the melted butter."
"This was really good! I used boneless skinless chicken breasts and drumsticks because that's what we like to eat. I added 1/2 tsp. poultry seasoning and 1/4 tsp. cayenne and it turned out perfectly-- very moist and flavorful with just the right amount of kick. Mac and cheese and corn made a nice comfort food dinner on a cold fall evening!"
"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."
"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 was easy and delicious."
