    This recipe was really good!Instead of butter I used Fat Free nonstick cooking spray when I coated the chicken and chicken breasts. I would have never thought to use it on chicken to give it that crispy effect.Thanks I will definitely use this recipe again! - 2/3/09

    Very easy! Satisfied that need for crunchy food also! Hint: Spray the tops of the chicken with veggie spray and turn them 1/2 way through cooking. You will get a nice crisp on both sides. - 2/9/09

    We tried it with chicken breast and it was really good. I used garlic flavored potato flakes.
