MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 10, 2014

The chicken came out juicy but the breading was too salty for our taste.

Family enjoyed this. Quick and easy!

MY REVIEW

Easy to make and tastes great. I replaced the garlic salt (onion powder) and salt (Mrs. Dash original) with substitutes to bring the sodium down. I even had enough coatings to do three halves. What low-sodium sides would you recommend with it?

This was okay. Nothing special

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 15, 2011

When I first saw this recipe, I had hesitation that it would taste dry. I was wrong! To feed my family of 6, I multiplied the recipe by 3. Instead of using cooking spray, I poured 4 tablespoons of melted butter over top the chicken. I would recommend this...... it is easy and delicious.
