  1. Giving this recipe 5* because it was perfectly crispy and beautifully moist inside. The flour cornmeal and corn starch were in perfect harmony for crispness. I used poultry seasoning instead of sage. Next time I will double the seasonings as it needs more flavor. I needed to sprinkle season salt on as I was frying because it was a bit bland to my taste. You will not be disappointed if you want crispy.

  2. I made this recipe for our dinner on 11/7/09. This recipe was made as written, except I used four chicken legs,3 thighs, and two pieces of boneless skinless chicken breasts. And since there was alot of the coating, the chicken was " double dipped " :). And instead of putting it in the oven, I just finished it up on the stovetop. But, I do think that if this is made again, the flour will be cut down by 1/2 cup and the seasonings will be doubled except for the salt. But other than that, it turned out very crispy. Thanks for taking the time to post and, " Keep Smiling :) "
  3. Tried it today and it was delicious. Grandsons had to have seconds. I did not put it in the oven as the weather was just too hot turn on. I just deep fried the chicken pieces and it turned out crispy and moist. I made the amount flour mixture but only used half as I had only 1 chicken. I saved the other half for another chicken later. Thanks.
