I used cornstarch instead of flour and made enough for our family of 4. I used 1/2 cup cornstarch, 1/2 teaspoon paprika and 1/8 teaspoon of the rest of the seasonings for 11 chicken drumsticks (about 3 pounds). In the gravy only used half the amount thickener since I was substituting cornstarch. We all loved it!

So good! This is a keeper for our family. The chicken has great flavor and we even put the gravy on our mashed potatoes.

Fabulous! I omitted the gravy just to cut down on fat and calories. I also did not have any cornflakes on hand, so I used crunched up ritz crackers. The chicken turned out moist and delicious!

Quick and easy recipe, full of flavor. There was not quite enough drippings for the gravy; however, butter was an easy substitution.
