    After reading the reviews, I doubled the seasonings in the dusting, batter, and coating and the end result was fantastic!! I used all white flour as well too. It was crispy and had great flavor. Thanks for sharing!! :)

    The gravy was easy, and of good consistency. I added a little extra pepper and some tabasco to spice it up. The chicken was great. Will definitely make again.

    I can't give this recipe any stars because I really changed things up. And it's just not right to rate my version of Sue L's recipe. BUT this is a great blueprint recipe to 'doll up' to suit your own tastes. I doubled the spices suggested and added cayenne for some zip. Also added some poultry seasoning to the gravy. Yummy! Today I chopped up the left over chicken and made chicken salad sandwiches. I will make this again.

    My familly liked the chicken and the gravy. I did have to add a little more seasoning to the gravy. I omited the egg wash and only used white flour. I will probibily make this again.

    I really liked the easy gravy, but I too needed to add more seasoning. Great and fun recipe. I will cook it again.
