You might expect rye bread and mustard on a sandwich, but here they make a very tasty crust for oven-baked chicken. If you prefer, substitute breasts for the legs.

    This is a pretty easy recipe and pretty tasty! I used Panko breadcrumbs as others suggested, and it worked out great. I've only used drumsticks whenever I've done this recipe, and it's been a family favorite!

    This was soooo good, my whole family loved it. I used just chicken breasts, boneless,skinless - and whole wheat panko bread crumbs - I've also used wheat germ as the "bread crumbs", yummy too! I served it with broccoli sauteed in garlic and oil and a salad - delicious, easy dinner.

    Just tried it (literally JUST--I have cleared the table but still have to do the washing up). I used it with boneless, skinless chick thighs.

    Had great success as well. Sounds ridiculous but was a huge hit for something so simple. Used the following adjustments: 1T of fresh lime juice: 1T of store bought minced garlic; 3 boneless breasts; air dried the bread all day while I was at work; tossed a tiny dusting of Tony Chachere's cajun seasoning into the crumbs (< 1t); skipped the oil on the pan and used PAM to cut more calories; baked for about 35 mins or until temp reached 165. Steamed broccoli worked very well with it.

    WOW! I used breast of chicken and followed recipe exactly. Thee proportions were perfect. Be sure to process the rye bread slices long enough. My family and my best freind loved this recipe. So easy and quick. Baked carrots and shallots were a perfect complement.
