Luby's Cafeteria Italian Chicken Breast

READY IN: 36mins
Recipe by Toni in Colorado

Luby's is a chain cafeteria in Texas and is a favorite of my sister-in-law in San Antonio. She knows I collect cookbooks so she sent me one Luby's put out in 1996. This dish is easy and very pleasing to the eye. Make sure the chicken pieces are not too thick as the coating would cook faster than the inside. I serve this with packaged Pasta Roni, steamed asparagus and garlic bread. This is as printed in the book for 8; I guessed on the ingredients for cutting down for 2.

This was easy fast and tasty. I ended up using too thick of chicken so next time I'll pound them down to a thinness that'll cook faster, but the coating was still flavorful. If you have all the ingrediants, it's actually a pretty quick week night dinner entree.
