Got it at work; it's for people prone to heartburn and acid reflux. I always liked oven-fried chicken at college, although I did go to school in New England.

This was just "ok" for us. The coating never really crisped up and was bland. The chicken itself was moist and had a good texture. I think I will play around with the coating to see what I can come up with. It was very easy to put together and it was quick to cook.

The crispy crust had a nice taste to it, but I did have some issues with it sticking to the pan. The chicken itself was tender and juicy though. Quick and tasty. Made for PAC Spring 2008.

I used 2 boneless skinless chicken breast halves and cut the rest of the ingredients in half. These were tender and juicy with a delicate crispy crust. Delicious and easy to make. This is a keeper. Made for PAC Spring 2007.
