Lindsey & I made these and served them with Honey Mustard & Ketchup -- the condiments are definitely worth it if you want to splurge. Otherwise, plain ol' salt & pepper (and maybe garlic salt) work great.

I made these with simple shake&bake chicken breasts. They browned up nicely and the seasoning was phenomenal. So easy to make and I will be making them often. Perfect portion for 2. Thanks for sharing Eli.
