I used a slight altered version of this recipe...did not use the celery salt or black pepper and used Pepperidge Farm herb seasoned breadcrumbs. This was awesome and all of my three children had third helpings of this chicken. I will be making this on a regular basis. Read More

For me this was just ok and my husband pushed it away after a couple of bites and wouldn't eat any more. The flavor isn't very good. Also the crumbs on the underneath side of the chicken get all soggy and unappetizing I'd suggest just topping the chicken with crumbs and leaving the bottoms uncoated. Read More

I made a few minor modifications to the recipe. First I used fat free sour cream in the marinade. I left out the butter completely instead I sprayed the chicken with cooking spray so it would get crunchy. This tasted really good. The chicken was very moist and flavorful. This recipe will stay in my recipe box. Read More

A++ I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts, and substituted a little creole seasoning (that we ALL love here in south Louisiana) for the salt, pepper, and celery salt. I served it for company and they loved it! A definite keeper! Read More

Delicious! My husband and I loved it. I used boneless, skinless chicken breast halves and substituted season salt for the celery salt (I didn't have any on hand). Unlike another reviewer, I really think that spooning the melted butter over top should NOT be skipped. It made the breading soft and delicious. I recommend this recipe. Read More

I was a little leery of the ingredients, but they turned out great! I didn't have any bone-in breasts so I used it for boneless breasts - this was the only change I made (I feel you shouldn't review a recipe unless you prepare it the way it was written). My family loved it! It was quite moist and very tasty. Read More

This recipe was easy and delicious! My only complaint would be that I'm not sure I tasted the marinade flavor too much even after it was in the marinade for over 8 hours. Read More
