    This was very good. Next time I will cut the celery salt way down, I thought there was too much.

    This is very tasty! I made half the recipe using three 6-oz. pieces, Ritz crackers, and olive oil. I baked the chix for 45 min.; next time I'll try it at 35 min. -Lori in WI.

    This recipe is absolutely delicious! I teach a basic cooking class and used this recipe and there was nothing left. Also, I made this recipe for friends and they took the little bit of leftovers home with them. Great recipe!
