Crispy Potato Chicken Recipe

We think this savory chicken tastes just as good cold as it does hot. It's perfect for a family dinner at home or to take along on a picnic. The potato-flake coating covers the poultry pieces evenly and bakes to a beautiful golden brown. -Dorothy Bateman, Carver, Massachusetts
