    Very moist and delicious! I use panko breadcrumbs if I want it extra crispy!

    This is a great chicken recipe. Other than using only legs and thighs, I didn't change a thing. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

    When I made this, I made some changes. I used olive oil instead of butter. I also added parsley and italian spices and cut the amount of salt (I have a heart problem). It was very good. Would make it again.

    I make this once or twice a month. My whole family loves it and if you ask us, you can't tell it's baked instead of fried. Delicious!

    [quote user="msboop"] WHY do people think they have the need to tell everyone it is too much fat? Simple, just don't make it,no comment nec., just don't do it. It is very tasty, which is the point. We are responsible adults. [/quote]Totally agree.  It frustrates me when people post a negative comment and mess up a rating when they have not even tried the recipe or see fit to tell others what they should or should not eat.
