Featured Ingredients

Bread Crumbs

Most people think of bread crumbs as nothing more than a way to add flavor and texture to dishes. However, bread crumbs can also be used as an effective ingredient in many cooking applications. For example, bread crumbs can be used to bind burgers or meatballs together.

They can also be used as a coating for chicken or fish before frying. In addition, bread crumbs can be used to thicken soups or sauces.

As a result, bread crumbs are a versatile and inexpensive ingredient that every cook should keep on hand.

Garlic Powder

Garlic powder is a versatile seasoning that can be used in a variety of dishes.

It is made by dried and ground garlic cloves, and it can be used as a substitute for fresh garlic in many recipes. garlic powder has a stronger flavor than fresh garlic, so it is important to use it sparingly.

It can be used to add flavor to vegetables, meat, poultry, fish, and pasta dishes. It is also a common ingredient in spice rubs and marinades.

  1. This looks delicious. But I’m confused about the servings. How can 1/4 lb of chicken breast serve 4 people?

    • Nesting Lane

      Hi Becca,
      It is supposed to be 1 lbs per 4 servings. (4) 1/4 lbs chicken breasts. I fixed it! So sorry about that!

  3. Can leftovers be reheated?

    • Nesting Lane

      Yes, you can reheat it. I place it on a baking sheet, and heat in the oven at 400 degrees F. for 7 or 8 minutes, or until it’s heated through.

  4. Linda Dunning

    I made this and it was really good. Very easy. I didn’t have Italian seasoned Panko breadcrumbs. So, I mixed a healthy Tbl of dry Italian dressing into the crumbs. I will most definitely make this again.

  5. This was delish!! I have already made this multiple tomes <3
