ingredients

directions

  • Preheat the oven to 190°C.
  • Grease an ovenproof dish (I use butter but I am sure olive oil could work).
  • Tear the bread into pieces and put it into a mixer, add the seeds and turn them into rough breadcrumbs.
  • Add the parmesan, pepper and lemon zest (if using).
  • Melt the butter.
  • Add the butter to the breadcrumb mixture and mix well.
  • Put the chicken breasts in the ovenproof dish and pat the breadcrumb mixture firmly down on top of them, covering all of the flesh.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes.
  • Optional: Once the chicken is cooked take it from the dish and add the lemon juice to the pan, mix well and serve as a side-sauce. This is very strong and not everyone likes it but it works very well with veggies such as broccoli. Use sparingly!

    Preparing this was a bit different from the usual way of breading chicken which uses flour/ eggs /dried breadcrumbs so I was a bit unsure about the outcome. Neither did it really stick to the chicken that much but I forged ahead and continued this recipe. I pressed and pressed and when I finally got it out of the oven and tasted it, it's so crunchy good! The seeds sure improved the breading especially with the buttery taste...Oh, I omitted the parmesan but it's still great! Thanks for sharing! Made for Spring PAC 2009.
