    We thought this was very good, next time, though, I'm going to use dry bread crumbs because it didn't stick to the chicken.

    really tasty, but I ended up throwing more than half of the breading away..

    Wonderful flavor and so easy to whip up! I agree with wiscook on too much breading for just 4 x 4 oz chicken. I mixed my breading and only used a small amount for my two chicken breasts, froze the rest for next week!

    I meant pie plate...not pit plate :)

    Loved it! Great flavor. As for extra breading, I had some left over from the first time (just put part of it at a time in a pit plate to coat chicken) that I froze it and used it again. Made meal prep really quick!

    Absolutely amazing! After one bite of the chicken the entire family voted that we should have this once a week! The flavors are perfect and the coating holds up nicely in the oven.

    very good, although seems like a lot of breading for 4 x 4 oz chicken. I will be reducing quantities.
