Great taste, but took off a star since the Bisquick mixture had a hard time sticking to the chicken. Next time I think I'd first dip the chicken in a mix of egg and milk. Read More

This recipe is just OK. I used chicken breasts so I had to watch them carefully since it gets drier than chicken on the bone. I really prefer coating my baked chicken with crushed cornflakes. I didn't have any and thought I'd give this a try. I'll go back to the crushed cornflakes. Read More

Great recipe that's easy to modify. I lined the dish with foil first - no mess at all to clean up. I used bonelss chicken breast, omitted the salt and used flour, pepper, Mrs. Dash original and Mrs. Dash tomato/basil/garlic and paprika. Wonderful & tender - better than fried! Read More

GREAT recipe. I actually used Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix instead of Bisquick and it gave it a sweet and salty flavor that was out of this world! My husband and daughter LOVED it! We'll use this one again . . . and again . . . and again . . . Read More

This recipe has changed my life. The reason this works so well and turns out like fried chicken is because of the fat in the mix. Do yourself a favor while you have the Bisquick out and make some biscuits; just stick them in the oven during the last 10-12 minutes of the chicken cooking. Read More

Good recipe. I used low fat bisquick alond with Emerils Essence. Additionally I used split chicken breasts intead of a whole cut up chicken. The time and temperature were right on. The chicken could have used some sort of dipping sauce but overall it was very good. Read More
