    Mirj's Note:

    My brother had been going on and on about this chicken. I don't eat at Popeye's, but finally found a recipe on the net, and boy, was he right about this chicken! It's delicious, although with all those mixes and the frying it can't be too healthy for you. The dipping takes a little work, but I think it's worth it!

      Good chicken but it does not taste like Popeye's, which is okay! I will still keep this recipe for future use!

      This tasted nothing like Popeye's. My regular chicken tastes better. It had no flavor at all. This recipe must have been a joke. Why does it have more baking than frying? There was certainly no "EEEEEEEEEEEEEYE Popping Flavor" or any other kind for that matter. The directions are easy, but the results are awful
