Made this recipe for dinner this evening & it was just great, & I'll definitely make it again, SOON! I used 4 chicken breasts. I started with the breasts bottom-side up & added more of the breadcrumbs just before sprinkling with paprika. Then, after 30 minutes, I turned the breasts over, basted with melted butter, sprinkled more breadcrumbs over each one & then added the sesame seeds. I was extremely pleased with the outcome! Many thanks for this great recipe.
