Personal Notes:
This is a newer recipe for me. Comes out perfect. Nice crust and juicy chicken. Make sure to spend 45 mins cooking and flipping. I covered the fry pan with aluminum foil. Funny story on myself: it seemed apparent when I got the whole chicken out to chop up that (at least there is no memory) I had never done this before! I was very novice, but it was really very simple for me to figure out--and--all on my own! (youngest child/married young syndrome :oD)
