  1. This is an amazing chicken recipe! I used boneless skinless breasts, otherwise made as directed and wouldn't change a thing. I cooked the chicken for 45 minutes and it was so moist and juicy and the crust was delicious. Thanks for sharing this keeper!
  2. I made this using boneless, skinless breasts and decreased cooking time to about half an hour. The chicken didn't dry out and the flavor was nice.
  3. This was OK. It's good with Helmans olive oil mayonnaise to be soy free as it is kind of like chicken strips. I followed the recipe exactly using sweet paprika, we dont like hot spicy. It was a pretty good meal served along with Recipe #69909, corn free ketchup from the health food store and Recipe #308203. I wont make this again. Made for Ramadan Tag.
  4. Easy & Tasty! I did use ground ginger instead of ginger root. Made for Ramadan Tag
  5. This was delicious! I think it's my new favorite chicken recipe. The whole family loved it. Thanks!

<style>body { background: url(; background-repeat: repeat; }</style> I'm out of high school and living at home so I do a lot of cooking for my family. I love to cook, for me it is both relaxing and fun, especially when there are no time limits! I started baking when I was around 9. I began with making bread then I gradually went on to making meals. Besides cooking and baking I love to knit, paint, sew, and study languages my favorite being Arabic which maybe someday I will actually be able to speak. Most of the recipes I post are family favorites or at least my favorites. My ratings go something like this: 5 stars: Very good, I will definitely make this again. 4 stars: Liked it quite a bit and will make it again but there was either something I had to change or I will only make now and then in the future. If it is lower than these two there is something wrong with the recipe (b/c I'm not picky at all!) and I'll just leave you a comment.:) I hope you enjoy the recipes I post and thank you for your reviews!
