After making these sandwiches, you'll never order the fast-food kind again. Marinating the chicken overnight in buttermilk gives it a wonderful taste and tenderness. The zippy breading is golden and crispy. —Gregg Voss of Emerson, Nebraska

"I have made these several times in years past. I love how tender the buttermilk makes the chicken. I add less cayenne so the kids will eat them and I spray the tops with a bit of cooking spray before baking to make them a little crispier. We love them!"

"Tasty sandwich! But I did pan-fry the chicken to give it a nice crispy texture."

"I have made these twice and I seem to get the same result..the breading is not crunchy or crispy at ALL (I am sure its because there is no frying involved) and the flavor is a bit ho-hum. I have even added extra seasonings to it and still..just a plain ol chicken sandwich in my opinion. :("
