This used just a few common ingredients, but had fantastic flavor. Both kids agreed. The chicken was super crispy and the coating actually adhered so nicely because it was so light. I will definitely make this again!

We had this chicken tonight and it is a clear winner. I used chicken thighs and they were scrumptious. So nice and crispy and such a good flavor. I highly recommend this delicious recipe.Volunteer Field Editor

Excellent. Used just wings cut in two pieces. Breasts might dry out cooked 50 minutes. Just had a day old leftover- yummy.

Everyone I have made this for can't believe it's baked not fried. My husband is picky and he loves it.
