|DELICIOUS CHICKEN DINNER ENJOYED BY THE WHOLE FAMILY!|
After working to prepare a lovely meal for my family, it's very rewarding when everyone, without exception, enjoyed the food and conveyed appreciation repeatedly through the meal.
After reading Dorie's description for a "quicker version" of this dish, I was intrigued with the idea of the "slower version" with bread crumbs and didn't mind the idea of including her few extra steps. One of my grandkiddies came to cook and we did not want "quicker." I do not often "fry" chicken. We have a fun outdoor setup, the weather is usually great here in sunny AZ, so most often our chicken gets grilled. For today, we wanted to spend lot of time together and enjoyed the fun indoor "fry" method.
I recently returned home from several days in Utah where I made an 85th birthday party for my mom. My dad sent me home with squash and onions from his garden, and lots of breadcrumbs he had just freshly made. Upon returning home my neighbor greeted me with fresh chard and herbs (used to season my breadcrumbs) from his garden. I had sweet broccoli rabe growing in my garden, and with the chicken breasts diable we enjoyed a delicious meal.
This chicken is tender and juicy with a crispy, flavorful, breaded crust. The sauce is outstanding and adds rich flavor to this dish. (T, my son--in-law, came back for leftovers the next day and again commented that he really likes the mustardy sauce.)
|TURTLE IS BECOMING QUITE A CHEF|
Hubby loved the mustardy sauce, made by my Turtle, and is always happy when we incorporate our backyard citrus into the meal.

I don't know how the "quicker" version of this dish turned out...I'm guessing it is also tasty...but the breaded version is a keeper. Turtle agrees and wants to help again when we cook this meal!
