I can't believe this recipe is on here. I received this from my husband's grandmother. She got it from a lady at her hair salon that said it was amazing, and she was right. Nice to make this during the summer cause you don't have to heat up the whole house with the oven. Thanks for posting!

I made this for dinner last week, made a double recipe, and it was gone in two meals (only 3 people ate it!) this is reall y good and easy. I did use italian bread crumbs, and butter milk ranch dressing from the bottle. Will definately make this again.
