"Very good chicken recipe, but nothing particularly special about it. There are others recipes that require just as much effort and are better."

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

"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?"
