      This was a hit with the family. The chicken has a nice flavorful coating and was moist and tender inside. I had a little trouble with the coating wanting to separate from the chicken while I was cooking it, but for the most part it worked out OK. After I removed the chicken, I deglazed the pan with white wine and used that to top the pasta I made to go with it. Thanks for sharing this recipe. I'll make it again.

      Yummy! We had this for dinner last night. It's something I used to make regularly - some 25 years ago, before I lost the recipe book it originally came from, during a move. It's a long out-of-print book called "Cookery for One or Two" by Barbara Swain. The search is over, thank you so much for posting this. We got a bunch ofdifferent flavoured EVOO at Christmas, so I used some of the basil one and some of the lemon one to fry it in, and this time used Panko crumbs.
