I was skeptical...but this was great! Reminds me of a smothered/baked chicken. I would recommend salting the chicken before shaking it in the seasoned flour. Yummy! Read More

I have never cooked fried chicken before. I was skeptical that this would turn out but I was happily surprised. I fried chicken legs and I followed the recipe exactly. When the legs came out of the final simmering pan I wasn't happy with how soft they were. I wanted my fried chicken crispy. I took the chicken and put it in the flour and seasoning again and fried it for another 5 minutes. We loved it! I enjoyed the extra coating and was so pleased with the outcome I will surely make this again. This is great even a novice can cook this successfully! Read More

I used this simple recipe with the sour cream recipe I found on here and I finally got it right. I used whole legs next time I'll just use drumsticks. You are going to need more than a tablespoon of oil. Not a low fat recipe but a great comfort food!! Read More

What a wonderful recipe! The chicken was amazing very delicious and not dry or soggy. You definitely need more than 1 Tbl of oil for the pan to get an inch. I only added enough to make for 1/4 inch and it was at least 3 Tbl. I didn't have any sherry so I used 1/2 cup brandy and 1/2 cup apple juice. Very moist texture and yummy flavor! Read More
