Reviews for Crispy Potato Chicken
"This is my favorite baked chicken recipe. It has been a family staple for years. In fact, it may have been the 1st TOH recipe I ever made."
"I tried this today... my family loved it. I used half butter and half extra virgin olive oil. Next time I will cut this back some. It was a little too greasy. Great recipe, though. I will definitely make it again."
"Hands down, this is a favorite recipe. I've been making it for years and we enjoy it hot, or cold. I especially like making it to take on our 4th of July picnic! I do use skinless breasts as I'm not a skin fan and it works just as well."
"This sounds heavenly! I purchase a similar dish: Cod with crusted Cheddar cheese, mashed potatoes and chives. I eat that main course nearly everyday for lunch. But I love chicken equally. I can't believe I never thought of substituting chicken instead of cod. I would however, use boneless chicken tenders or breast for the recipe. But I'll definitely try it out soon! Thank you for the recipe. I too love cod / chicken cold. Delicious!"
