"I have made it twice an it is very good. Only thing I do differently is put in the oven after draining the oil. 350 for half hour or until done."

"This was a good fried chicken recipe. The pieces were crispy on the outside, moist and hot on the inside. The coating had a little bit of spice and decent flavor. The only issue I had with it was that I had to quadruple the coating ingredients when I only had double the amount of chicken. Overall, though, this was a success."
