This recipe is the best! The kids will love it and Dad too! I make in the morning before I leave for work, so when I come in from work, I just pop in the oven.

This was interesting. Usually baked chicken with crumbs on it is supposed to be crunchy. These, cooked covered, are not crunchy but what a neat texture and taste for a change. Overall I prefer a crunchy texture but for a change of pace these were really good. Thank you Vicki!!

My husband absolutely loved this one. It's easy enough for him to make and healthy enough that I'll let him! The chicken comes out really moist. There is nothing worse than dry chicken.
