I would never have believed that “fried” chicken could be delicious if it were baked. But I was certainly incorrect. I tried several oven fried chicken breast recipes and this is one of my favorites. I prepared it with a serving of low-sodium chicken flavored Stove Top stuffing. If you use the Stove Top, you will need to add 3 Points to the meal. I have served this dish with steamed broccoli or yellow squash instead of the stuffing on other occasions.
