    Yes I made this with Thighs I used 1/2 cup of salt in the Brine, only thing I will change drop heat from 375 to 350, 375 cooked the chicken to fast, so by the bone is was still not cooked all the way on a few of them. All and all my family and friends loved it. Will definitely cook with this recipe again and again

    Used 5 lbs of chicken breasts in an attempt to make chicken fingers. Let it brine overnight, maybe that was my mistake but waaaayyyy too much salt...just inedible. Waste of time and money. I might try it again with a different brine recipe. I like the idea of the double flouring.

    This recipe is amaaaaazing! I'm an American who lives in Finland, so I often get huge cravings for things I used to eat that aren't available here. I tried a few other fried chicken recipes in the past that have left a lot to be desired, but this one was PERFECT! I will definitely be saving this for when my fried chicken cravings kick in. :)

    really impressed with how it turned out! moist chicken on the inside. i let it sit in brine overnight, gonna use less salt next time, but as someone frying for the first time (and was intimidated) it was an awesome and tasty experience!

    I made a version of this. I increased the spice level in flour and in batter and broke and brined it overnight. Loved the double dip!!! It was a massive hit

    Well admittedly I don't like the coating as puffy and breaded as this makes it and I'd definitely say add more spices to the brine and coating but it did work quite well.
