This was delicious! I used butter flavored cooking spray to butter my dish. After coating the chicken breasts with crumb mixture and placing in baking dish I put the rest of the crumb mixture on top of the breasts and slightly patted down then added butter/lemon mixture... didnt want it to go to waste! I did notice though that my butter/lemon mixture seemed to get clumpy and thick? I think I mixed it together to early and let it sit?? not sure... I might do that step very last next time... it didnt hurt the flavor.. it just didnt spread over the chicken as easily. I loved this recipe though and plan on making it again! Thanks Kittencalkitchen!
This was so good. I have made a similar recipe that didn't include the lemon juice. I ended up using about 3-4 teaspoons of lemon juice and cooked it about 40 minutes as I was waiting for Dh to get home. I put the rest of the crumb mixture on top of the chicken before I poured the butter on top. My Dh and I fought over the crusty parts at the edges. MMMmm good stuff.
