Crispy Breaded Chicken

When you cook, what's your main goal? To present a delicious, succulent meal so why over complicate recipes? I strongly believe that a simple recipe with fewer ingredients is easier to follow and can sometimes turn out a lot better. It helps that chicken is extremely versatile and so can be cooked in many different way. I stock my fridge every week without fail. This breaded & baked chicken can be enjoyed by the whole family! In fact, why not prepare the chicken together and get in some family fun?
