i thought it was pretty good. good flavor and nice crunch. the only thing was that when you place the chicken on the rack, some crumbs from the coating fall into the pan below. then when you are baking, those crumbs burn. my oven got all smoky, which was unpleasant.

My husband loved it. Which is the true test of anything new i try. I added dijon mustard to the chicken after if turned it, and it added a lot of flavor and smelled amazing. This is going in the must have file.

I made this for my boyfriend's birthday dinner when we'd only been dating a couple of months - he's a very good cook so I was nervous about fixing him something new for the first time. But this recipe, as easy as it is to prepare, also is a delicious, slightly different way to serve chicken. We both loved it and I would definitely make it again.
