Our mother started doing this when the commercial crumb mixes first came out, but she did not want to spend the money for them. I sometimes use herbes de Provence or whatever gravs my attention, instead of garlic. Also, to reduce fat, try coating the chops or chicken with buttermilk (commercial, not milk with vinegar). The buttermilk coats the meat beautifully and gives the crumbs something to stick to, at a calorie saving.
