Our Thoughts:

Our mouths watered at the smell of the chicken baking. It was flavorful and just what the doctor ordered since we wanted to make something quick and easy. The chicken was very moist and crispy. Although it was not necessary to use any dipping sauces we tried the chicken with barbecue, buffalo and ranch. It didn’t matter which sauce you chose the chicken was very delicious. We made our daughter’s chicken with nacho cheese tortilla chips. They said it tasted like chicken tacos!
