Recipe by Michelle S.

I have had this recipe for years in my "book" but have yet to try it. It sounds so good that I had to share it. I have had it so long I have forgotten where it originates.

This is GREAT chicken! It was moist and juicy and the breading was crispy and delicious. I would add a little more garlic to the breadin mix next time but overall AWESOME!
