This recipe is adapted from the windykitchen blog and is perfect for a weekday or quick meal. It would work equally well for pork or fish.

    I’ve always heard that lemon zest has more lemony taste than juice. Would adding some zest to the breading work, do you think?

    Lemon is such a wonderful flavour in both sweet and savoury recipes and I really love lemon chicken. Adding the crunch is a great idea. I think I may have to do something like this with my left over turkey breast.

  9. Sounds and looks delicious.
