I made this recipe on 4/2/13 for the " Alphabet Tag Game ". Except for using boneless skinless chicken breast the recipe was made exactly as written,I even added the onion powder. Both my SO and I felt that it was pretty bland. Maybe doubling up on the spices might help some. But, I will say that the chicken was very,very crispy. Thanks so much for taking the time to post this recipe.
