Recipe by Marsha D.
This is a recipe from my own kitchen. I needed to use up some of the things I had in my pantry and spice cabinet so I decided to make a breading for chicken breast fillets. You can also serve these chicken fillets with cooked veggies or some kind of salad instead of sandwich. My husband was so surpised when he took a bite my special breaded chicken. He loved it! He mention that this would also be good with a white chicken gravy.
