    My friends and family love this recipe for fried chicken. I never did find savory, so I make it without it, but it is still delicious and after trying 10-15 other recipes, this one is our favorite.  -  01 Jun 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Not the best fried chicken recipe I've ever had. I added all the ingredients thinking it would be way too spicy, but actually, it was quite bland.  -  25 Sep 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    If your expecting KFC chicken don't make this! My family ate it but none of us were overly impressed. This recipe has potential though. Personally I would leave out the savory next time this herb is way too strong for chicken. I may try this again but will definately adjust the herbs and spices more to our liking. Spice mixture will also stick to chicken better if you dip in plain flour then egg then spice mixture. I also double dipped in egg and spice mixture.  -  25 Feb 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
