Reviews for Crunchy-Herbed Chicken Breasts
"I freshly grated a good quality cheeses and really didn't get the flavor I was expecting. Maybe my expectations were too high or I'm spoiled from the flavor I get from soaking the chicken in a buttermilk mixture before breading. Still, the chicken was moist and good."
"Really tasty. We don't really like panko so I just used plain bread crumbs."
"Tasty and great for a week night. We had extra bread crumbs when we made chicken thighs so I will half it next time."
"this is such a good recipe and I make it over and over again....its not one I mind eating every week :-)"
"Easy and tasty. Served it with a side of spaghetti and italian-herbed bread. Great combination."
