"This was absolutely delicious. There was plenty of dressing mix & brown sugar to add extra chicken pieces. Two breasts, thighs and legs weren't enough. I can't wait to make this again."

"It is amazing how tender the chicken is. The flavor combo is right on and delish!! And not to mention taking the skin off takes away the fat from the meal! I have made this quite a few times, and am actually making it tonight too! This is def. a keeper for me and my fam!"

"Was looking for something different in the way of know the family gets tired of the same old stuff. This was very good. The chicken came out tender and it smelled sooooo good in the oven. The kids told me it was the bestest chicken in the world. I lined my pan with foil and sprayed it with cooking spray so it wouldn't stick. I really recommend doing that or it'll be a messy clean up."
