"This is one of our favorite ways to make chicken. The coating really stays on, and the pan is easy to clean afterward," writes Polly Coumos of Mogadore, Ohio. "Besides being low-sodium, the recipe contains no added fat. The seasoning can be adjusted according to your taste. We like to pack this chicken cooked and chilled for picnics."

"I'm so glad I found this recipe It is truly delicious. It's hard to find a spicy dish that isn't loaded with salt and fat. I used skinless chicken breasts and baked them 45 min. I'll definitely be making this recipe again"

"My husband loves fried chicken, but I never had much success making it for him until I tried this recipe. His principal criterion for good chicken is how it tastes cold and this meets his standard. Everybody else willingly gobbles it hot or cold!"
