  1. Really enjoyed this recipe. I'm not crazy about Dijon so I substituted Deli mustard instead. Thanks for sharing another great recipe.
  2. Looking for a comfort food Saturday dinner that to feed the kid in me but still managed to appeal to my adult tastes and this worked perfectly. I used a mesquite barbeque sauce with a good kick and used Recipe #33875 to prepare my own Shake and Bake mix. I noticed on my chicken the breadcrumbs did not adhere as well to the chicken and next time might do two parts S&B to one part breadcrumbs. The spice additions to the coating were great. Also found that a bit of cooking spray gave the coating a great crisp. Thanks Kitz!
  3. So easy and tasty. Gives an American classic a nice kick. My 3-year-old ate it up! I served corn-on-the-cob with this chicken.
