very good flavor!
I used a combination of thighs and drumsticks (what I had in the freezer) and instead of dipping in melted butter, I brushed the chicken with low-fat French salad dressing. Everyone enjoyed it.
My husband and I liked it so much and it was so easy that I made it two nights later and sent it home with our daughter to share with her family.
I made this for my niece and nephew (who are picky eaters) who were over for the evening. We all loved it. I omitted the butter and used an egg and 1/4 cup skim milk instead. I also cut the chicken into strips beforehand, which cut the cooking time down to 20-25 minutes. My husbands now asks me to make this quite a bit.
This recipe is fabulous, but I have made a few adjustments. First off I soak the chicken for a bit in buttermilk rather than dipping in butter, coating still sticks and less fat. Then I cook on a rack in the pan so that the breading is crisp on the bottom, and finally I put a little extra seasoning in the crumbs - cayene pepper, cajun spices, whatever takes my fancy that night. This is delicious and easy if you grab chicken pieces from the supermarket all ready to go.
