    The chicken was drier than it should have been. A lower cooking temperature should cure this. I found the coating to be extremely dry also and not sure why. Flavor is excellent and it is very easy to make.

    This was easy & good. I didn't have sour cream so I mashed up cottage cheese & I didn't have corn flakes so I crushed some garlic crackers & my husband loved it!

    Very good and simple! However, I think I would cook it at a lower temp since some of the breasts were a little dry. Also I would add some salt to the breading mix. Thanks for a great recipe for a fellow college student! :)


I am just starting cooking this year and I cook for my roommates 2 days a week if they pay me! I like trying new recipies but I am not too exotic in my cooking. I like trying recipies out on my roommates and thier friends because they will eat anything even if I don't like it, so it works out well. I am a busy poor college student so cooking healthy and cheap is hard! But I generally enjoy cooking.
