Not bad!! I was out of "Oven Fry" coating for chicken and turned to your recipe. Now I don't have to waste my money!! Yours is economical and tasty. I added a bit more spice and some cayenne which was just right for us. Also I lightly oiled the pan and most importantly, started the chicken out meaty side down so that when you flip it for the final cooking, the skin gets really browned and crispy from the oil. Thanks Helen for the great recipe.

I made this chicken for my family and they absoluetly loved it. My husbands co-workers even want a copy of the recipe.

Just wanted to tell you I've used your recipe constantly since the first time I tried it. I've also given it to my sisters, and it's a mainstay during the week for them, too. We have convection ovens now, and the chicken comes even crispier than it did in the regular oven. Bless you!!!!

Easy and Tasty recipe. Next time I will grease my pan as the coating stuck to it. I think I will add 1 tsp of poultry seasoning too for a little extra flavor.

This is a great recipe! It never occurred to me that I could oven fry chicken without any added oil or butter. The fat that was in the chicken skin did a terrific job. My only change was that I did add more spice and salt. That is a personal preference. My husband and I like a spicier flavor. Because I had 5 drumsticks and 5 thighs, I tripled the recipe, but doubling it would have been enough. I lined the pan with aluminum foil and sprayed with cooking spray for an easier cleanup. Found that flipping the chicken every 15 minutes or so kept it from sticking too much. Very nice - crispy, tasty and little effort. Thank you for a wonderful recipe. Will surely make it again.

Very good and very easy. I put olive oil in the pan, but, it still stuck real bad. I'll line the pan next time with alum. foil. I also put caynenne and extra garlic in it to spice it up a bit. I used chicken legs and it turned out very tasty.

Made this for dinner tonight and it was great! When I make this again, as a personal preference, I will add all garlic powder and no onion and a touch of cayenne pepper to spark it up a bit. I also added a little oil to coat the pan, but next time, I will line the baking pan with foil for easier cleanup. Thanks for posting, Helen.

I followed the directions and while the appearance is nice and the skin was crispy, the flavor was very bland. It would take a lot more seasoning to make this comparable to your typical fried chicken.
