"I was mildly disappointed as the chicken did not turn out "super crispy" as advertised. The crust was good, but came off in places. Could have been due to the fact that I had to cut some huge pieces into smaller pieces as I feed a crowd."

"Absolutely D-elicious!!! This is such a tasty recipe. I made a few minor changes, I added a bit of Panko to the breading to make it more crunchy, and put some egg in the butter. YUM!!"
