For some reason, my blogging program is not allowing me to add a photo right now....one will follow when I am able! I believe this recipe (from a 2010 edition of Cooking Light) recently resurfaced in their "Best Of" issue. This was an easy chicken dish that works well with potatoes and a nice big salad or green vegetable. Easy and fast! Enjoy!
WALNUT & ROSEMARY OVEN-FRIED CHICKEN
I did not have the time or patience to saute the panko breadcrumbs before assembling and it still tasted great. Do what works for you with the time you have available.
