Wonderful flavor and so easy. I followed the instructions exactly using an electric skillet. The crust turned out perfectly and the chicken was tender and moist. Thanks for a great recipe. :-)

Good family food that was fast and easy to prepare. I used the extra cayenne and mustard like RecipeNut suggested and was pleased at that addition.

My kids LOVED this recipe! I did dip the chicken pieces in eggs first. I cut the chicken into bite size pieces and cooked them in my deep fryer. It didnt take long to cook at all. I will definitely be making this again for them. Thanks!
