    Gee, I have all the ingredients on hand except the convection oven. I'll run right out now and spend $ 1200 on a convection oven so I can make this "easy" recipie. Is there any editorial function out there in All Recipies land? What are you thinking. At least give directions re cooking time and temperatures for a conventional oven as well. Stupid recipie.  -  18 Jul 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    For Janice Wilson Homola: I bake this in a regular oven all the time. 375* for 20 to 25 minutes per side works for me. Living alone, I bake the whole package and freeze the rest so I have chicken on hand for salads, sandwiches or any recipe that uses pre-cooked chicken. Use any seasoning you like, but NOT fresh herbs as they will burn.  -  19 Jul 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This has been my go to seasoning on baked, grilled, fried, and even boiled chicken for years. Am I the only one who thinks this is highly overrated? Am I the only one who has thought creole seasoning on chicken is the prefect combo until this? This is so simple. There's nothing to it. If you don't get it, you are better suited for something else. I'm sorry that's harsh. But it's true. 1 star because this shouldn't even be included on this site.  -  19 Jul 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
