Crispy Potato Chicken Recipe

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

"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!"
