We weren't impressed by this recipe & probably won't be making it again. I agree with previous reviews.. the floury texture and taste wasn't appetizing, and that was after I shook as much as the flour off as I could (per another cook's suggestion). Positives: the chicken itself was nice and juicy, and the coating was nice and crisp.

Very good recipe! I also had to make extra coating for the drumsticks, we had 8 smaller drumsticks. Great meal!

Very good oven fried chicken, I found that I needed to make a bit more of the flour mixture to coat 6 large drumsticks. I really thought this was a tasty and very simple way to make chicken. Thanks:)
