    was really delicious think I'm going to add a few more spices to the recipe I think the flower to spice ratio is a little much

    The chicken came out great. I used a (real) castiron skillet which helped with the crisyness...also i have a large family made up of mostly big healthy almost grown men; so if you are feeding a large group such as myself, it is best to use 2 skillets and have a nice size kitchen. I stay in a cramped 3 bedroom apartment with a very small kitchen so it took an hour and a half to just cook the chicken but the end results made it worth it. Only suggestion, depening on your tast buds, you may need to add a little more salt to the Chicken Scratch. Overall, great recipe.
