"I made this exactly like it said, but I forgot the chicken. Needless to say I went hungry that night. I feel like Hillary. I feel stupid just like her."

"I just made this. Because I was using thighs I increased the cook time to 18 minutes. The chicken was "popeyes like" in appearance. The kids and the hubs loved it."

"This recipe is horrid. I cannot comprehend how anyone could give this mess 5 stars. Quite simply, it was bland and tasteless. The former KFC employee is right -- it should be double dipped and at least 1 cup of flour should be eliminated. I hated the color of the final product!"

"I'm giving 5 stars because to my taste buds the recipe was only missing hot sauce and chicken seasoning on the chicken and in the flour mixture. Very crispy.... I loved that!"

"It's ok but something is missing. It seemed quite bland. Maybe more spices or salt would help. Not near as good as KFC."

"OMG! SO easy and delicious! My go-to -recipe for sure. I adjusted the spices and only added a pinch of regular salt since I am sodium/salt sensitive. Two tablespoons garlic salt is a bit much."

"Sodium is way too high. 2 pieces has a day's worth. Sub granulated garlic for the garlic salt."
