The coating has stuck to the frying pan! I will grill them next time.

I love this dish. Easy to make, perfect mid-week meal, but I also grilled it, which works just as well.

I was disappointed with this because the breadcrumbs burnt although the coating did keep the meat very moist. If I do it again I think I would grill it.
