Not difficult to make but they seemed rather dry. I think if I would have used a darker meat like thigh meat it would not have been so dry. Also, I was afraid that I had not cooked them all the way through so after browning I place the pan in the oven for a while until the center was very hot. I would make again but with modificaitons.
