“An ever so easy chicken recipe that is quick and tasty to whip up after a busy day when you don't feel like spending ages in the kitchen doing preparation. Just crumb the chicken, then relax with a nice glass of white wine before cooking. Goes really well with new potatoes, rice or couscous.and a salad. Enjoy! NB: I have posted this recipe as it was printed in the Feb 09 edition of "Recipe+" but my chicken breasts were very thick so I cut them thinly so they were more like schnitzels.”
