    Claire, the only change I made was to buy chicken legs for this (personal preference). I've never used buttermilk as a marinade before, but it made the legs so juicy and tender. The crumb mixture was really yummy with just the right amount of bite. Thanks for a great recipe that I know we'll make again soon.

    The chicken wasn't too spicy for my children, so if you are looking for HOT, add more cayenne. I used 2 pounds of chicken tenders and had lots of the breadcrumb mixture to spare--I would probably cut down on those ingredients next time. The chicken was wonderfully crispy on the outside and tender and flavorful!

    First the good news: The chicken turns out moist & just the right amount of spicy! The bad news: I had a terrible time with the coating - it stuck in the skillet over low heat & started to burn after about 2 minutes per side. So, I popped it into the oven & then the coating got soggy & stuck to my pan. I will definitely try this recipe again to see if I was just "having a bad day".

    The flavor of this chicken in phenomenal! I marinated overnight and it came out incredibly juicy and moist, with a wonderful (and yes, quite spicy!) flavor! This is a nice change from the chicken dishes I'm used to making! Thanks!
