      Fried chicken is a much loved meal in this house, and we already have a top recipe for it..but as this uses breadcrumbs we thought that it might make a nice variation for us. We were right...the chicken is moist and tender and the crumb crisp and crunchy. A good chicken recipe-thanks ellie! Made for PRMR.

      This is terrific chicken! I followed the directions exactly, using Panko bread crumbs (crispy Japanese bread crumbs) and it turned out just perfect. My family loved this, there's nothing left. Thanks ellie for the great recipe.
