This is a 30 minute meal that is very delicious and easy. I got this recipe from Cook's Country by the same people as Cook's Illustrated (America's Test Kitchen) They usually don't let me down.

I really liked this one! Flavorful and very 'quick & easy'. All the kids and my hubby had seconds .. we'll be making it again. I used Panko breadcrumbs (love those!) and omitted salt. Everything else was according to recipe. Thanks for sharing it!
