Sagegreen October 8, 2010
You are welcome. You had me at "under 15 minutes!" This sounds like a great way to throw those pantry ingredients together for something both so portable and savory. Looking forward to making this tomorrow!
Taiyyaba October 7, 2010
I can test the BFF Crispy Coated Chicken!
Food52 October 7, 2010
Sorry Taiyyaba, for now we're sticking with 1 tester per recipe and TiggyBee already snagged this one. Is there another recipe you'd like to test? (And if you do make the BFF chicken, please feel free to add your thoughts to the recipe's comments section)
