Wow.. This is some damn good chicken. It's crispy and has a great taste that we couldn't get enough of. So yummy with potato salad!

Wonderfully crunchy chicken! I did not have the corn flake crumbs but used gently crushed rice krispies and it worked perfectly. Added a wee bit more of the cayenne for our taste. Has gone into my favvy file. Well worth doing the messy part to get the crunchy juicy chicken! Thank you for sharing Classy97!

Saw this posted and had to try it. Reminded me of fried chicken my mom made us when we were growing up. Deliciousness with crunch!

Crunchy, moist and full of flavour thank you Classy87. Made as recipe but used what we call a Maryland Cut (thigh and drumstick kept intact) and scaled back for one serve and thoroughly enjoyed, made for Alphabet Tag Game at FF&F.
