i really liked this chicken. The crust itself was dry but I couldn't believe how juicy and succulent the chicken was inside. The crust was flavored nicely and I liked how the crust didn't just fall off like say, shake n bake does in the oven.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Rinse chicken and pat it dry.
  2. It works best thin, so put the chicken breasts between two sheets of waxed paper and pound them to about 1/3" thick.
  3. Pour beaten egg in shallow bowl.
  4. In a shallow dish or pan, combine basil, oregano, pepper, salt, and grated cheese.
  5. Brush chicken with the lemon juice, then dip both sides in the beaten egg.
  6. Next, coat chicken with the cornmeal mixture.
  7. Let chicken sit on a wire rack for 20-30 minutes.
  8. Spray George Foreman two sided grill with nonstick cooking spray.
  9. Cook chicken for 4-7 minutes until thoroughly cooked, brown and crisp.
