This recipe is awesome. My son came home from college and requested it for dinner! I don't fry it, I bake it and it is just as good!

It's been years since I've been to PH but this recipe is just like I remember them serving. And it was a good excuse to buy capn crunch cereal (loved that as a kid)

I made this tonight by following the recipe perfectly. I cooked on medium to medium high heat, adjusting as needed. They turned out dark, but not burnt, and crispy. The only thing I will do differently next time is season the chicken pieces themselves rather than mixing the seasoning in the flour. While the breading was good, the chicken was very bland.

This recipe is absolutely perfect! I used to work at Planet Hollywood when there was one in DC so, I ate these almost daily. This recipe gave me such tremendous flashbacks. Excellent! Will definitely make again soon.

I have made this about ten times. Most people think it sounds horrible until they eat it. Try it with baked sweet potatoe fries. Perfect meal!

I found this recipie to be very easy. I had no problems at all. This is a great dish for a dinner or appetizer. My family loved it.

Boil the chicken first then fry it. That way it wont burn (if you dont want to use the oven). And make sure the oil in the frying pan is hot, otherwise your coating will fall off. Wonderful meal!

You can also make this in the oven at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Great for those who don't want to use oil. Turns out crisp and yummy!

After the initial mishap of the oil being too hot and burning the coating while leaving the inside very uncooked, we figured things out and it was an awesome meal! My only recommendation to people looking to try this out: put the oil over medium-low heat. Seemed to be a good temperature for cooking!
