Easy to make and it was good. Seemed like maybe too many breadcrumbs, which works out ok. My fiance liked it, even though he saw me spread the mayo on the chicken.
Very tasty recipe I added 1 tsp Sambal Olek to the mayo and only coated the top side. Used Panko crumbs and again only drizzled them on the top. The chicken was lovely & moist - loaded with flavor and crunchy I placed foil loosely over top for half of the 25 minute baking then removed it to allow the crumbs to brown.
I really enjoyed this chicken. I used WW whole wheat bread for my crumbs. They weren't fully dry so the chicken never really got all that crispy. The flavour was still fantastic. I also used Calorie Wise Miracle Whip and a lot less of it. I realized after they were made that I had forgotten the S&P. It was not missed so I don't think I will bother with it.
