Good. I did not use the tarragon or ginger. Used parsley and garlic instead. Also used extra virgin olive oil instead of the butter flavred SPRAY.
I thought this was good but mine came out a little dry (???). I just saw the ingredient list calls for 3 egg whites, I only used 2; maybe this was why it turned out a little dry (?) Will try again since I love fried chicken and have been looking for lighter versions.
This is wonderful. The chicken was moist. Just the right amount of seasoning on the coating. And I didn't have to scrub the pan; easy clean-up. Will be making again.
delicous used dried bread crumbs and added flax seed to it
