Reviews for Peanut-Crusted Chicken
"This was quite good, although the marinade was the best part. I had a hard time getting the breading to stick to the chicken and thought the peanuts didn't add much, so I would probably just use the marinade and then use an egg wash (whites or egg substitute) to stick the panko to the chicken and bake as directed. Was tasty but needed some modifications to really work."
