    Chef Emanuela's Note:

    Delicious hot from the oven, this flavor-packed chicken is also wonderful cold. Made ahead and refrigerated for up to three days, this dish is perfect for a picnic.

      This chicken was delicious! I added some baby new potatoes and lemon quarters to the baking dish; the lemons with the pan drippings made a lovely sauce. The breadcrumb crust was very tasty and kept the chicken moist. I served green beens with it and topped them with some of the sundried tomato crumbs. This is a great weeknight dinner, easy, quick and delish! Tagged, made and reviewed for PAC spring 2012.
