I made this for PAC Spring 2008, and I'm going to rate it w/o stars b/c I messed up. I followed the recipe pretty exactly, only I was pressed for time, so after I dunked the chicken in the buttermilk, I dumped the chicken and coating in a plastic bag and shook well, like in shake and bake. Well, this coated the chicken so well that when I baked it, anything that didn't get hit by the margarine had a powdery coating on it. The chicken baked up juicy and tender and where the coating crisped, it was tasty. A solid 4* recipe even with my goof, so I'm planning on trying this again.
