Both the chicken & the dip had excellent flavour. But, the coating did not stay on the chicken for me. It was the strangest thing - it was almost like the chicken expanded in the frying pan & the coating cracked & fell off.

I loved the idea of this but I baked mine in the oven & it didn't really turn out as hoped. It was quite dry, possibly not the recipes fault as I didn't follow thr directions for cooking so not posting with stars just a comment. Thanks for posting anyway, is always nice to try something new even if it doesn't work sometimes!!

Nice taste with the surprise of the lemon shining through. I used 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts and baked them at 375 for about 35 minutes. I breaded the chicken and then sprinkled on the seasoning and shredded parmesan cheese. It sticks to the dish so best to spray the dish or use release aluminum foil.
