    We really enjoyed this! I used both Panko and breadcrumbs (not mixed together) the breadcrumbs got dark quicker...and we really didn't notice a difference in taste...so use what you have available...my chicken pieces were huge so I had to cook them longer...that's why they are on the dark side...I was surprised at how crispy they turned out...hubby loves fried chicken so he was a happy camper...thanks for posting it...=)

    Delicious fried chicken. I used Panko breadcrumbs as suggested by another reviewer, added a dash of garlic power, and fried the chicken in a cast iron skillet. Served it with recipe #147254 and recipe #124798. In the past I have used recipe #108411 to bake chicken but this fried version is excellent. Made for PRMR game.

    Fried chicken is a much loved meal in this house, and we already have a top recipe for it..but as this uses breadcrumbs we thought that it might make a nice variation for us. We were right...the chicken is moist and tender and the crumb crisp and crunchy. A good chicken recipe-thanks ellie! Made for PRMR.
