Reviews for Southern-Style Oven-Fried Chicken
"Really easy, juicy chicken recipe. Perfect flavor though I did add salt."
"Out of this world??! The chicken breasts that I did with this recipe were so succulent my son said,"Mom you out did yourself...fantastic??! Well, needless to say this recipe is a KEEPER??!As side dishes, we had Paula's acorn squash and Green Giant's no sauced peas...What a scrumptious meal. Please enjoy it real soon??."
"This was really easy and good.The only thing I changed was I didn't add cumin and since I used chicken breasts I baked it a little longer.Will probably make again with thighs and legs."
"I didn't really care for the cracker coating in this recipe. Probably will not make this again."
"Followed this recipe exactly except I baked it a bit longer because my chicken was bigger.Turned out great and definitely beats standing over a fry pan!"
"Excellent! Followed the recipe instructions exactly, which is something I don't normally do. A definite keeper."
"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! I followed the recipe exactly and I wouldn't change anything. The whole family devoured it. Will definitely make again!"
"i used this breading on chicken tenders and it was great!"
"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!"
"This recipe was a big hit with the family. Preparation was pretty fast and simple. Next time I will probably add a little onion salt/powder and cayenne pepper to spice it up. Great recipe!"
