@djgale 1546452: We're glad you like the recipe! Let us know how it turns out! -- Editor of RecipeLion

This sounds sooo good....looks like I'm the first one to comment with a thumbs up. My husband Ed and I love Cilantro, Garlic and Jalapeno. We plant Cilantro and Jalapenos every season. Can't wait to taste it. YUUUUUUM-OOOOOOOO!

@Char34 and Barbie Doll: Cilantro is an unusual herb in that it tastes very different to different people. Some people find the flavor of cilantro offensive. If you don't like cilantro, I would suggest making this recipe without the herb. It will taste just as yummy with the warm flavors of garlic and jalapeno! -- Editors of RecipeLion

I agree....sounds awful. Maybe because I don't care for cilantro.

////i wouldn't even try this recipe. I have cooked long enough, and cook well enough to know what will go together well, and the combination of tastes in this recipe do NOT go together well. It sounds terrible!! In the first place, "Traditional" Southern Fried chicken is NOT deep fried. That is what resturaunts have called southern Fried Chicken, for as far back as I can remember, and I am 77. For as long as I have been old enough to eat anything other than baby food, I have eaten Southern Fried chicken, cooked by some of the best southern cooks, including me, and it is NOTHGING like what they serve in resturaunts. It is skillet fried, NOT deep fat fried.
