This a lighter barbecued and crumb-coated fried chicken. It is crisp, flavorful and good, with a crunch topping

Top Review by Mami J

This is a nice, simple dish. I made half the recipe because I doubled the amount of chili in the sauce to make it spicier for the adults. I wish I had thought of doubling the sauce to serve with the chicken breasts as a dipping sauce. Thank you for sharing. Made for Spring PAC '10.
