    I have made this recipe in the past, but found that adding garlic onion powder, salt, and a little Tony Chachere's Seasoning really adds lots of flavor to this basic recipe... Marinading the chicken in buttermilk and Texas Pete or Tabasco is good too!

    Excellent, I like to use 1/2 butter or margarine with the oil.
