I made this on 9/22/08 for mine and SO's dinner.As Chef Jellyqueen did, I used boneless skinless chicken breasts and used garlic powder instead of garlic salt. I also added a bit more seasoning salt than the recipe called for.I didn't know what you meant by seasoned pepper, so regular ground black pepper was used.Since I used boneless skinless breasts, the baking time was cut back to 45 minutes.The chicken never did crisp up, but that was o.k. it was still good enough to be made again. Thanks for posting and, "Keep Smiling :)"
