Reviews for Crispy Picnic Chicken
"The coating of this chicken was soggy."
"Very good and easy to put together. I turned the oven temp. to 425 for last 10 minutes of baking time because I like a crispy coating."
"My grandma used bread crumbs instead of the cracker crumbs but both are delicious! I have also added french fried onions to coating mix when processing bread/cracker crumbs! Triple the recipe and save in a jar or sealed plastic bag for quick meals. It is also good for pork chops! One other hint is to line baking sheet with parchment paper for no mess cleanup. The coating tends to stick to the pan. This recipe brings back fond memories of my grandma!"
"very good one! my family love it!"
