      Ruby, I've made it several times, and it is excellent, especially with homemade fries.

      Yum, never thought of adding a dash of hot sauce. I do love honey mustard on mine! Can't wait to try it!

      It comes out well every time, frogyfish, all the grease comes off the chicken(I LOVE the skin!) and ends up in the pan.

      Yum, this sounds delicious! Never thought of baking it that way either.

      Yes, Sparrowlet, which is why I wanted to try it. I think you will enjoy it. It's pretty light.

      Thanks! I loved it, because it is not greasy at all, and I love skin, when I do eat meat, which is rare. All the fat drains through the rack onto the pan, so it is totally guilt free without frying, but has the same taste.

      Voted up, useful, and awesome. Everything needed to make your own. I never heard of fake fried chicken before. It looks and sounds like it would be great though:) Great job.

      Garnetbird, I think it will help in keeping your blood pressure down, if you skip the skin on the chicken. I have a friend with diabetes, and he walks three miles a day. Over a year, it made a big difference.

      The beauty of this, Stephanie, is that the chicken fat also drips off the rack that it is on, to help keep it as healthful as possible.

      This sounds like a great way to make chicken. I'm not much for frying, but love the way chicken comes out when it's breaded. I'll try this soon!

      Perry, it is just for you, lovely and moist chicken. That way you can get plenty.

      Ok, is it the chicken that's fake? Are these human thighs? With eight thighs, I'm guessing spider. How exactly do you bread spider legs? Do you have to take off the fuzz first? Do you shave them or pluck them? It doesn't sound like it would feed too many folks. Does hot sauce really go well with spider?

      I'm confused.

      Hope you like it, Tammy. I like to drizzle honey on it just before I eat it.
