The mildly seasoned coating makes this chicken tender and juicy. I'm sure your family will enjoy the old-fashioned flavor and appearance as much as mine does.

"I thought this was pretty good. I only used 2 teaspoons of salt though because it seemed like 2 tablespoons was a lot. I like that theres enough for a second batch later on. I also didn't have stone-ground wheat crackers but had garlic crackers that I used. Overall, it was pretty good."
