Crossing the Road at Mach.80 - Easy Chicken Dinner


You start by dipping some extra large chicken breasts into a mixture of whisked egg with a dash of salt and little basil in it. Then coat the chicken pieces with Italian seasoned Japanese Planko bread crumbs. (They have more of a "bite" to them than Italian ones).

Pepper each piece lightly and place on a baking pan sprayed with non stick spray and bake at 400F for 25 minutes to crisp up the crumbs.

Then pour enough Poppyseed dressing over the top of each piece to cover, quickly return to oven and bake another 25 minutes. The coating ends up as a blend of soft and crunch with a delicate, almost sweet and sour undertone to it. The chicken underneath stays unbelievably juicy. I sliced it after baking and served on top of Amish noodles with a salad and dinner was on the table in just a little over an hour.
