    I'm so glad you enjoyed it, Teeki1975! The first time I served it to my partner, he said something similar to your hubby. It's a great substitute for full-fat fried chicken, and easier to make, too!

    Spiced-Up Oven-Fried Chicken is absolutely hands down a winner. My family loved it and didn't miss the full fat version. Hubby said it is the best baked chicken he has ever eaten. Thanks so much. I look forward to trying more of your recipes!
