Very good chicken. It stayed moist and had a very good flavor. My kids actually asked for it again(they are very picky). I will be making this again. Thanks Mysterygirl.

This is one of the most popular chicken dishes I have ever made. I wasn't here when it was for dinner, but I expected to eat the leftovers when I got home. Unfortunately, there were no leftovers, though I was told it was very good.

WOW!! This was great!! I did add quite a few different seasonings (pepper, basil, oregano, paprika)to the mixture as I thought it would be too bland otherwise. I also double dipped. I dipped the chicken in the egg then the potato flakes and then egg and potato again to give it more crunch. I also baked it for 15 minutes longer for more of a crunch. FANTASTIC!! My husband says this is our new substitute for you know who's fried chicken ;-); its also so much healthier!
