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 :)"

I needed a recipe for some boneless chicken breast. I decided to use this recipe, and boy am I glad that I did. This one goes straight into my "Tried and True" cookbook. I used garlic powder instead of garlic salt, and just added a little extra seasoned salt. This chicken was not only good but it looked just like fried chicken, but instead of being dry, it was very moist and tender!!!! Thanks for the great recipe.

Super EZ.. I guess my taste buds are failing now too, but I felt it needed more UMPH. . This goes right into my DS's CB, thanks for the ease!
