Before getting on with this review, I have to say " First, I'm pleased to be the first one to rate this recipe. :)". Now, on with the review, " This recipe was made on 3/28/12 for the " Peppercorn~Black Pepper Event " in the Food Photo Forum. Instead of using chicken parts, only 4 chicken legs were used and the amount of bread crumbs were adjusted accordingly. But the amount of seasonings were left the same. I didn't read the recipe carefully and left skin on the chicken. Also I felt that 2 Tblsps. of oil wasn't enough to prevent sticking,so I upped it to 1/8 cup. Now my SO thought it was pretty good, and even though I don't care a whole lot for dark meat I found it quite tasty. Thanks for posting and, " Keep Smiling :) "
