Top Review by Boomette

I didn't have cornmeal so I did a search for what to use instead and it gave me cream of wheat as substitution. I had it so I used it. It was great. Very easy recipe. I used only chicken thighs. The skin was crispy and yummy. The chicken was falling apart from the bone. So tender. It was great. Thanks Chef mariajane :) Made for Bargain Basement tag game
