This was a good recipe. I made this sometime last week and served with fresh homemade bread and honey glazed steamed carrots. I only used 2 chicken breasts, but left the rest of the recipe the same and it was perfect - no leftover crumb mixture at all. Not sure that I will make this again, but it was worth trying.

It was very easy to make and we all loved it, including all of my very finicky children!
