      I can't give this recipe any stars because I really changed things up. And it's just not right to rate my version of Sue L's recipe. BUT this is a great blueprint recipe to 'doll up' to suit your own tastes. I doubled the spices suggested and added cayenne for some zip. Also added some poultry seasoning to the gravy. Yummy! Today I chopped up the left over chicken and made chicken salad sandwiches. I will make this again.

      I made this the other night for dinner, and I do have to say that the presentation of this chicken was a gorgeous golden brown. However, it did need a little more seasoning for my familys taste. And the country gravy was real bland. Next time I'll add more season to the batter and I won't make the gravy because the chicken really didn't need it. Thanks for sharing.

      After reading the reviews, I doubled the seasonings in the dusting, batter, and coating and the end result was fantastic!! I used all white flour as well too. It was crispy and had great flavor. Thanks for sharing!! :)
