I get bored with the same old chicken, so I came up with this simple recipe. The coating adds fast flavor to tender chicken cooked on the stovetop. —Laura Theofilis, Leonardtown, Maryland

"I tried this coating on fresh Alaskan Cod I got from Costco. Huge pieces of Cod. Can't wait to do the chicken recipe."

"For those of you that are having trouble with the breading sticking to the chicken; place dipped and battered chicken in the freezer for 15 min and then straight to the hot skillet. This works great for shrimp and mushrooms. I could never get the batter to stay on mushrooms till I tried the freezer trick.

I used equal parts Dijon, honey and mayo for my sauce and I loved this dish that way."

"Excellent recipe. My husband and I really liked it. I made one change -- instead of butter, I used coconut oil. I will definitely make this recipe for company."
