This tastes nothing like Popeye's chicken! First, the breading is so dense that the skin of the chicken never actually crisps up! Second, the breading/batter is very sweet, you can't really taste any of the flavors from the paprika, seasoned salt, or any of the mix packages!

Someone needs to go back and actually taste Popeye's chicken, even the regular style (mild) has tons of flavor. It's not bland like this pathetic excuse of a recipe!
