Homemade 'shake n bake' Chicken
The inspiration for this dish came from one of my issues of Cooks Illustrated Magazine.
They had a recipe for Shake N Bake Pork Chops. A lady wrote in a request for a shake n bake recipe that would be as tasty and easy as the box, but without all the foreign ingredients often found in prepared boxed foods.
The secret ingredient turned out to be: MELBA TOAST. Crushed and seasoned. Then the pork chops are dipped in egg and coated with the melba toast mixture. They are placed on a baking rack in a baking sheet and baked until crispy.
So I tried it with chicken breast halves, which I pounded to make them thinner. They were very good. I will definately try it with the pork chops too.
Leave me a comment if you want the entire recipe.
