I've never made fried chicken in my life. I used this recipe for the first time for 6 large chicken legs, using my new food processor, and they came out great! I ended up with extra flour, egg and ground cheerios. I seasoned the flour, but it probably would be better to season the cheerios. Evenstill, they came out great! item not reviewed by moderator and published

Great recipe; however, since I did not have any Cheerios, I substituted Italian Bread Crumbs. Thanks. "bearsun" item not reviewed by moderator and published
