Is 3 better than 1?

I've become hateful at settling for simply one recipe, especially if I find multiples of similar dishes, that a bit from this one, a dash from that one, and cooking method of another, sound even better! Well, to suit crazycook's palate, anyway...
The first time I EVER fried chicken ( just a few months ago, I believe,) the flavor was fantastic, however, per the recipe, the chicken simply wasn't quite cooked through... So, this evening, I blended at least 4 recipes together, to fix "mock KFC fried chicken"
(for the flavors,) with "oven fried" directions from a number of recipes! I did brown the chicken pieces in hot oil to brown them. From there I popped them on a broiler pan (with rack) into a 350-375 degree oven, for the remainder of a full hour. OMG, was
it yummm! My thigh was a little greasy, but then, thighs usually are, aren't they? Besides, I had planned on chowing into the one breast, or I would have cleaned the fat and excess skin off the thighs! So much for "expectations!"
I was, however, extremely disappointed in the recipe I decided to try for "mayonnaise." The only flavor I could detect was that of olive oil, which I doubt I will ever use again as I've decided that while many recipes call for vegetable or olive, the vegetable
oil would have been a tad lighter... Definately time to drop that recipe into the recycle bin! I may have narrowed down what I believe might taste better, but I simply MUST use this product... thankfully we do have "salad dressing" to use on sandwiches and
the like! I also am still baffled as to why mayo seemed to double in price, in a mere 12 months!
That is all of the extent of excitement in my life today... so I hope you are all healthy, happy, and crazy!
