Comfort food to the max! Just felt like some good old fried chicken and mashed potatoes for dinner, so went hunting for recipes and came up with this easy to prepare one. The chicken was moist and the poultry seasoning gave it a nice flavour, thanks for posting. =)

This chicken is great! browned on both sides and simmered... turning occasionally... and it was done before 40 mins was up... did allow it to cook the extra 5 mins uncovered... I didnt have poultry seasoning,., but I found a recipe for it to make this chicken! :-) It added such a nice flavor as evie said... I served it with my famous 'eggs n' potatos' :-) and apple sauce... family loves applesauce with fried chicken LOL :-) Thanks for a lovely meal!

I was looking for a recipe to use some bone-in chicken breasts and came across this one. So on 4/2/09 I made this for mine and SO's dinner. I let the chicken soak in buttermilk for about 5 hours, and followed the recipe as written. I think I might have cooked the chicken too long, as it was on the " really dry side " to me.And my SO and I both thought that it could have used a bit more seasoning. Thanks for posting, and "Keep Smiling :)"
