Crispy Parmesan Chicken

 Crispy Parmesan Chicken
FOR US, chicken breasts prepared this way is a nice reminder of when abalone was found in markets and menus on the West Coast. These days, abalone is scarce, so my son discovered a way to prepare chicken to resemble our favorite food. It's a wonderful, simple recipe. —Marian Platt, Sequim, Washington
