I like the inclusion of wheat germ in this recipe, and while it uses chicken breasts, fish would/should also work. This is from Fitness magazine.

A family favorite! I've used it for chicken breasts, pork chops and fish. The red pepper is not overpowering but just enough to know it is there. We used to grill the chicken breasts and pork chops, but not since we found this recipe.

I just got this same recipe from my Mom who saw it in the newspaper. She tried it and liked it. I just made it last night and we liked it too. Even my picky 3 year old gobbled it up. It is easy to perpare, has a nice crunchy coating and is very flavorful. We'll be making this on a regular basis.
