I used my spice grinder (or clean coffee grinder). It makes the herb better blinded and better textured. Just remember to pulse it. Don't grind like coffee.

If I could give it a 2.5, I would. Pretty easy, but the flavors are very separated. There's chicken and then herbs. They don't meld together at all.

Awesome chicken. My mother enjoyed this one will definitely be making it a lot more often.

This is very tasty-I've made it now 2 times. Last time was for family Christmas supper. Everyone liked it and ask for the recipe. To speed up prep time and make a little healthier, I used a little extra olive oil to grease pan and put chicken in to coat both sides then into crumb mixture. (Second time had more chicken and used a little Italian Seasoned Bread Crumbs to stretch the coating mixture.) Baked in oven on convection at 400 for approx.14 minutes. WONDERFUL

I wasn't really impressed with this one. Was edible but the spices over powered the meat.

My husband and I loved this recipe. It was simple and fast to make as well!

There's just too much oregano in this for me. I might make it again if I only use a tbsp of oregano. It was just too overpowering for me.

Fabulous! Great flavor and the coating stayed on through the entire process.
