I made this on 1/10/11 for mine and SO's dinner.Since there was just the two of us,a couple of boneless skinless chicken breast were used.I adjusted the ingreadients as follows, 2 Tblsp. vinegar,1 1/2 tsps. salt and 3/4 cup of flour.For the rest of the dry ingredients except for the garlic salt I just gave a couple of light shakes of each one. And as for the garlic salt I used garlic powder instead.The chicken was pounded thin so it would be more evenly cooked.Fried for about 6 to 8 minutes on each side until golden brown.Since I was serving mashed potatoes, a gravy was made using the leftover flour and pan "drippings ". Both my SO and I really enjoyed the "umph " that came from the poultry seasoning.We both give this a good " solid " four star rating. Thanks for posting and " Keep Smiling :) "
