To make this chicken dish spicier, add 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper and 1/4 teaspoon dry mustard to flour, in addition to the other seasonings.

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. :-)
