This oven-fried chicken is the perfect dish to prepare in advance and take on a picnic because it tastes just as good cold as it does warm. It's been a family favorite for years. -Sharon Crider, Junction City, Kansas

"My husband loves this, he says it tastes like his favorite restaurant chicken from when he was little. I started subbing crushed cornflakes for the bread crumbs, and we like it even better!"

"Excellent! I used skinless, boneless chicken breasts and Italian bread crumbs."

"Very tasty, my little brother loved this recipe (which is quite an accomplishment for me!) The only issue I had (and this happens with most breaded chicken anyway) is that the breading kind of fell off while we were eating it. It didn't really stick to the chicken after it was cooked. Oh well, still a good recipe!"
