"I feel really stupid. I just rated this recipe and have never made it. I made another picnic chicken recipe and thought this was it. Please disregard my rating etc."

"OMG...so good. I have already passed this recipe on to other people and they too have given it rave reviews. The only thing I would stress is use unsalted butter in the pans or omit the salt in the dry mixture. Maybe the recipe already stated this and I just missed it. Anyway...VERY good!!!"
