Top Review by Elisabetta47

This chicken is crispy, flavorful, simply marvelous. And that's despite the fact that I skinned the chicken pieces; the crust adhered beautifully evenso. Perhaps this could bring the somewhat excessive calorie count down a bit. What I don't get is why the sodium count is so high when there's no added salt. Thanks Chef Regina for an any-season winner!
