    This was really delicious and tender. I used 2 skinless breasts and reduced the egg to 1 egg white, which was more than enough. I used lemon pepper sesoning instead of just pepper in the crumb mix for added zing!

    This was a surprisingly delicious recipe ! The ingredients sound so simple, but the result is so yummy ! My only addition was some garlic powder in the oatmeal coating mix. It says to serve with tomato or chili sauce, but I honestly found it to be tasty enough to eat “as is”, just like fried chicken. I will definitely be making this one frequently !
