    MarthaStewartWanabe's Note:

    I quickly threw this recipe together one night as an experiment. It resulted in sweet-and-spicy crunchy-coated moist chicken breasts, which DH gobbled down and professed his gratitude. I believe this coating would also be nice on salmon filets, obviously adjusting the cooking time to 10-12 minutes instead of 25-30 minutes.

      What a great new way to do chicken breasts ~ I was a little skeptical when I saw the gingersnaps ingredient, but made for some VERY TASTY CHICKEN! The only change I made (a small one) was to substitute lemon pepper for the usual S&P! Thanks for a great keeper!
