From an Easy Everyday Cooking recipe card. This chicken is breaded, baked and served with a flavorful sauce. Great served with black beans and rice.

The chicken was crisp and tender and the sauce was delicious. Quick and easy to make, a great weeknight meal. I served it with a side of Recipe #232306. Made a great combination. Made for PAC Fall '07.
