    It was good but didn’t give the chicken a great flavor!

    Sooo good! I let it bake for about 17 minutes and used regular salt for the brining part. Not too much though because I didn’t want to risk the chicken being salty. I used season-all, black pepper, and garlic powder. I didn’t measure anything but it came out great!

    Used olive oil; might not have rinsed off all the brine but turned out well. Will make again.

    i dont understand what I did wrong here but i could not get my chicken to reach 165 degrees! I've been cooking it forever 😔

    This turned out better than I anticipated. The chicken was indeed juicy and tender. I added my own seasoning since I didn’t have the paprika. I baked mine for more than the 15 minutes and even added some ketchup to give it a sweet savoring taste. I will be doing this again. This is actually my first time baking chicken by myself with no help. My parents loved it, and so did I.
