Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix together the first seven ingredients (from the cheese through to the black pepper) on a piece of waxed paper - saves on washing up later! - or if you prefer on a plate; put the oil in a shallow dish.
  2. Dip the chicken breast halves in the oil, then coat them evenly with the cheese/breadcrumb mixture.
  3. Spray a non-stick skillet with cooking spray and set over a medium heat; add the chicken and cook, turning once, for 15 minutes, or until golden brown and the juices run clear.

The only substitute was the cheese, I had parmesan but no romano. I baked them for 30 minutes at 325 and they came out tender and tasty. Thanks.

I have to say I altered the recipe, in that I used bone-in chicken breast, and then baked it instead of frying it....the bone-in chicken was what I had, and baking it fit in with the other things I had to do. This recipe adapted perfectly to this! I used shredded romano cheese, which I really had to press onto the chicken to get it to stick, but it worked wonderfully! I noticed it getting a little brown while cooking, so I made a loose tent with foil so that it wouldn't burn, but would still stay crisp. I ended up with wonderful tasting, crispy chicken! Made for Best of 2009 tag! Thanks for sharing your recipe.

The spices and strong romano cheese gave this chicken great flavor. A word of caution...even on medium heat it cooked too quickly. I quickly turned it down to "low" and resumed cooking. Even with one side slightly burned, it was great.
