This did NOT work for me. The texture of potato just didn't work. Maybe it makes a difference which style of potato you use? Mine weren't exactly flakes... more like little balls and I blended them to get a better texture.

Very yummy! I like to make this when I am in the mood for a great chicken recipe but don't want to slave over the stove.

Loved it! Will never make fried chicken on top of the stove again.
