“So easy, get everything ready ahead of time including coating the breasts then refrigerate the chicken until you want to cook it! - Takes 20 minutes to cook! This recipe is from Bon Appetit August 2006 tweaked a tad by me. We enjoyed it. Panko crumbs are available at most Oriental Super markets. There won't be a lot of sauce just enough to drizzle over the breasts”
