Southern-Style Oven-Fried Chicken Recipe

This was oh-my-word good! I was just making a small amount of drumsticks, so I halved the amount of crackers I used. I kept the seasoning quantities the same, though. It was so flavorful!

Delicious!! So crunchy and moist. Will make this recipe again! I followed the recipe as written and I don't think I would change anything, but might add just a pinch of salt.

Very good! The whole family enjoyed it. I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs and garlic powder instead of garlic salt. Next time I will add a little salt. Tasty!
