Sometimes my modifications work
I’ll admit I have problems with listening. I don’t follow directions well, especially if they come from a blog. This time my stubbornness worked out for me. Recipe here.
I spend quite a bit of time looking for chicken recipes that my boyfriend won’t complain about. If it isn’t beef or sausage, he doesn’t want it.
Anyway, this dish is awesome. I used thinner pieces of chicken breast, which negated the need for cutting the slits into the meat. I only soaked the chicken for about six hours, but the recipe suggests you do it longer (possibly overnight?), but it turned out just fine. I also used freshly grated parmesan instead of the stuff from the can but I crumbled it up in my hands. I have an entire box of regular Panko, so I wasn’t going to buy the whole wheat that I will probably never use again. The chicken came out wonderfully tender and juicy.
I served it on top of angel hair pasta with a jar of Ragu mixed in with sauteed mushrooms, onions and minced garlic along with various other Italian spices that I add by taste instead of measurement.
