I took a recipe off a box of baking mix and altered ti to make it easier. The result was this moist oven-fried chicken with a thick golden coating that's a lot crisper than the original. —Angela Capettini of Boynton Beach, Florida

"Like others, I used 3 eggs instead of the egg substitute and put the dry ingredients in a zip top bag. I thought the breading was good--just wasn't crazy about it on the chicken. However, I will be trying it on pan fried fish--think it would be really good like that."

"I tried this tonight for something different on the taste buds and even my pickiest eaters LOVED IT!! I forgot to remove the skin but it was still delish. Also, I too used 3 beaten eggs instead of the substitute. I also didn't bother flipping the chicken, but I will next time as it took about an hour to cook. Enjoy"

"I made this tonight, and really liked it! When I flipped the chicken it seemed a little on the dry side, so I drizzled a bit of olive oil on it to moisten a bit more. The only thing that I would do differently is when I put it in the egg then in the breadcrumbs, much of the mixture began to come off on my fingers. Next time, I might use a fork to dip the chicken in the egg/crumb mixture, or put it into a plastic bag to coat. But the flavor was wonderful, I'll make this again!"

"My family loves this recipe! I feel like I make it once a week. I added a teaspoon of chili powder to flour/corn flake mixture to give it a little spice."
