Crusted chicken with mayonnaise and herbed breadcrumbs

Chicken. The meat that most of us prefer to eat. There are countless ways of cooking it. However, the chicken is a bit indifferent to the taste. Needs salt & pepper and a spice to enhance the flavor.

Today's recipe gives a personality to the chicken. Although we use breast halves, which are generally the most "dry" parts of the chicken , the crust keeps them juicy and the spices give an incredible taste. It's a dish that I make quite often and each time is delicious. You can keep the herbed breadcrumbs in the refrigerator for some time and coat various meats .

Just pay a bit of attention to the baking time .. do not overcook or do not leave it raw.

Enjoy !
