Very, very good recipe! I cut the breasts into quarters and tenderized them with a meat mallet. And I cooked them in a pan with a rack, which kept the crumb coating even and crispy. Also very tasty warmed over the next day.
Sunday dinners my husband's family gathers for dinner after church. We each take turns making the main dish and I made this and it went over pretty well. I needed more than 2 cups of cracker crumbs, and i did substitute some of the "salts" for powders, but all in all it was easy to make and people liked it.
So good, perfect for a large extended family and having guests over! I would make it again!
We often have almost 30 people at our house for Christmas dinner so I appreciate the large recipe. Just do the math and reduce if it's too much.
