      Very good flavor. I would try double dipping next time, to make a thicker, crispier crust.

      DH just loved this! I thought it was really good. He loves fried chicken. You can really taste the marinated ingredients in this dish. Mine came out on the darker side. Maybe I cooked it on a higher temperature, I don't know but it sure came out juicy and crispy. Thanks for posting.

      I made this for dinner tonight. Last night my husband kept saying "What is the white stuff in that bag?" I don't know what to really say about it except that only at times could you really taste the marinade. I think that frying this kind of over powers the taste. I'm wondering if baking this would be more tasty. I might try this again but in the oven or by grilling it.
