You'll be surprised with this twist - I used this recipe to bread pork chops! You should try it if you haven't! My fiance had to eat and run and thanked me profusely for the great chops. I only had two prok chops to use, so I cut the recipe in half so as not to waste too much. Can't wait to try it with chicken!!! I love your recipes!
