      I did this with chicken wings and it was really good. The smell while cooking was incredible. Do be generous with the spray on cooking oil.

      i've tried this before and it's usually quite good. I had to substitute crushed saltine crackers as all my breadcrumbs were stale and i couldn't be bothered cleaning the blender, but it was still tasty, and the technique is great. I baked it on parchment paper and sprayed the tops but the coating still slipped off a few pieces. Rosie must have a trick she's not sharing?

      My family loves this recipe. It comes out really well if you bake it on a silicone baking pad like a Silpat. Also, spray the top of the chicken well so it will be browned.
