    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    Make these as spicy as desired by adjusting the cayenne peppe, you may use your own favorite seasoning for the breading mixture --- plan ahead the chicken needs to marinate for 3-4 hours, I have listed oven-baking instructions on the bottom of the recipe -- if you are making these for a small crowd I strongly suggest to double the recipe these will be gone in a flash they are so good, serve with honey mustard dipping sauce :)

      These were fabulous. We don't eat a lot of fried foods and don't like to eat a lot of processed foods and these were definitely worth the effort. Will make again!

      If you like chicken that is really crisp and flavoursome on the outside and wonderfully moist and succulent on the inside,then this recipe is a MUST for you.It is absolutely DELICIOUS!! I started off baking mine,and threw it into the fryer literally for a minute to really brown it off nicely (mine looked a little pale from the oven although perfectly cooked!!). An absolutely fantastic recipe..KITTENCAL,you've done it again xx
