  1. Just made this tonight. My boyfriend and I loved it, he is a picky eater so I'm was happy that he enjoyed it. Just one question, my panko didn't stick to my chicken. Any reason why that would happen? I made my chicken into cubes but don't feel like that would matter. Even with that slight issue, it was amazing.
  2. Hi! How can I make this into a freezer meal to make ahead of time? I'm thinking of coating the chicken and then freezing it in a foil pan. Do you think it would defrost okay and that the breadcrumbs would stay intact? Maybe you could give me a better idea! Thank you!
