Recipe Notes

* Bread crumbs may be substituted.  Check out Making Homemade Bread Crumbs.

** The U.S. Department of Agriculture, as well as food agencies in the United Kingdom and elsewhere, advises against washing poultry.  Rinsing chicken will not remove or kill much bacteria, and the splashing of water around the sink can spread the bacteria found in raw chicken.  Cooking poultry to 165 degrees Fahrenheit effectively destroys the most common culprits behind food-borne illness.
