This made for a wonderful dinner!! The breasts soaked in the refrigerator all day until dinner time. I followed the recipe except that I used egg beaters instead of an egg. I used Italian bread crumbs and added them in step 7. I dipped into the flour mixture, egg and then the breadcrumbs. I hope that's how it was supposed to go because it worked! :) Thanks so much for posting!!
