    This is delicious. I used chicken legs. I brushed each with a small amount of oil and then rolled in the spices. So easy and what a kick!  -  11 May 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I cooked this for a sunday dinner because it was easy and you just pop it in the oven while your dressing for church. My family really liked it and my husband don't care too much for baked chicken. The only thing I feel it needs different is too cut back on the paprika. It's a little too strong. overall it was very good. I fixed new potatoes with mine in the same pan.  -  29 Mar 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Delish! My youngest, pickiest eater said "this is how you make chicken, mom". It was easy, juicy, economical & delish. My husband can't have sugar or salt, so I just used a very small sprinkle of brown sugar & replaced the salt with garlic & onion powder. I also turned the chicken to coat on both sides. Great recipe, thanks Denise!!  -  20 May 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
