I quartered a whole chicken and baked for 45 minutes at 175C fan forced for moist and tasty chicken. The only changes I made was to give the chicken a spray with cooking spray (if doing that add the spare crumbs after spraying) and I left the skin on, otherwise I think I may have a revolt on my hands :lol:, I would also recommend that you do not dip chilled chicken into the butter as it ceases up the melted butter (take out of the fridge about 30 minutes before dipping - you can always put back into the fridge after crumbing which I would also recommend to help them set). Cooked up nice and crispy but I would need to adjust the spices to suit us a little better. Thank you Tasty Tidbits, made for ZAAR Chef Alphabet tag.

Even the picky eaters liked it. I did thighs and legs along with “Best Baked Bean� by Emily JMJ from this site for an indoor picnic. Thanks for this great and impressive recipe. My mother liked it and she is hard to please.

I'm not sure if I missed something, it wasn't really barbeque, but it was really good. We really enjoyed this nice & easy recipe & will be making it again. Thanks
