Crispy Herb Baked Chicken

"The crispy coating on this chicken makes it flavorful and tender! This was adapted from a Hungry Jack recipe. The original recipe called for dipping the chicken in 1/3 cup margarine instead of spraying it with cooking spray, so feel free to do that instead if you prefer!"

    I dipped the chicken in a beaten egg instead of spraying it with cooking spray (I also just coated the dish in butter instead of spray). I didn't have garlic powder so I just used seasoning salt. Everyone loved it! I was pretty hesitant to try this because potato flakes don't seem like they should go on chicken, but I wanted to get rid of the half-bag of them that were in the pantry. I can't believe how great it is! This is going to be a regular at our house.

    I really enjoyed this recipe, it was easy & something different. I did use 1 teaspoon of Garlic powder and added some Basil, i also used alittle more parmesan (1 Cup) I loved it. :-) Well done Kree

    I took under advisement Troop Angel's review about the blandness. I used the full teaspoon of garlic, added 1 teaspoon of onion powder, 1 teaspoon of salt, and 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper. It was great! I will make this again with the added spices. Next time I might add a full teaspoon of black pepper or maybe a pinch of cayenne for a little punch. The flavors of the parmesean cheese combined with the flakes and spices were terrific. By the way I used a spray olive oil and coated both sides of the chicken pieces before breading. The breading stayed well on the pieces.

    I liked this dish. It came out nice and golden and crispy. I had fun with my fiance as he tried to guess the "secret" ingredient (the potato flakes). The picky boys ate it, which was a relief. I had a little problem getting the coating to stick to the cooking spray, so I drizzled just a little bit of olive oil over them, gave a nice flavor. I will probably make this again, it was very quick and easy to prepare.

    I was really hoping that this would turn out better than it did. I thought the coating was bland, it just didn't really have a taste to it. And maybe I used too much coating, but the coating on the bottom of the chicken turned to mashed potatoes; so it wasn't crispy at all, more like mush. The top really wasn't crispy either like I was hoping. It smelled good cooking, but for me and my family, just didn't taste as good as it smelled. Sorry, I really wanted it to work out. :(
