    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.
