I substituted panko crumbs for the bread crumbs and 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese for 1/2 cup of the flour. I also used skinless chicken thighs and cooked them on a baking sheet with a rack sprayed with cooking spray. They will get crisp on all sides that way. I added more seasonings only because I love highly seasoned food and I omitted the salt. That's just my taste. This recipe can be adjusted to anyone's taste. Great basic formula to start with. The cornstarch adds to the crispiness of the food so don't leave it out.
