Another crunchy, crusty, easy recipe for you! Who doesn’t like crunchy stuff? Everybody loves crunchy stuff right?
This is right on the heels of my Herb and Feta Crusted Salmon that I posted last week. Gettin’ my crunch on this fall!
This is one of the recipes, that once you make it, you will be whipping it up weekly! Perfect for a week night meal and just as yummy for company. Only five ingredients and most of those you probably have hiding in your pantry.
The crunchy topping keeps the chicken so moist. I had to show you how it slices up. The white balance on this pic is totally sucky, but you get the idea.
I have been making this for years. I first had it in a restaurant outside of Seattle when I was just a young chef. I made it for years after that and I guess I just kinda forgot about it. I started whipping it up a month or so ago when I was in a hurry and I thought…hey, wait, I have a food blog! Lets post it on there! Always thinking….mind like a steel trap.
I usually serve this with a Dijon/Greek yogurt dip. Two parts yogurt to one part Dijon…or if your waistline is smaller than mine and your arteries are clearer, you can use mayo.
