"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."
