This is a great fried chicken recipe! Talk about easy!! Instead of the black pepper and the garlic salt I did seasoned salt and garlic powder. I cooked the chicken in the oven instead of a pan. Yummy! Read More

I would give this one star but I am afraid that I must have done something wrong. The chicken simply would not cook evenly in the pan and it took forever. The coating was nice on the few pieces that worked but on most it fell off and we had to finish cooking it in the microwave! Not a keeper. Read More

This was good but needed a lot more spices. I will make again but probably double the spices. My kids loved it though! Read More

This recipe was awesome. The only thing I did different was use honey flavored frosted flakes instead of corn flakes. It gave the chicken a wonderful honey flavor to it. It blended nicely with all of the other spices! This one is a keeper! Thanks! Read More

This was a good recipe but not fantastic so I give it three stars. I added an extra 1/4 tsp of each of the spices because it was too bland otherwise. Read More

I made this recipe in 2 batches. I oven baked both but in the first one I used oil heated and cast iron skillet. This did not work very well the breading fell off. The next one I used a rack and baking pan. This way worked better and helped the coating stick better. I also used frosted flakes since that was all I had in the house. It had a nice sweetness and terrific crunch! Thank You laVanda:) Read More

I thought it was very good. I soaked the chicken in a brine to give it a little more salt taste and used frosted flakes. My three boys and my wife loved it. Read More

I cooked mine in the deep fryer. Maybe it was that but alot of my batter fell off. Even at a lower heat. It was a little too bland for us so I doubled the seasonings. It was insanely good!!! I'm going to try it again in a pan. I gave it 4 stars because I feel like if I had been at LaVanda's house it would of been perfect. Read More
