I scaled this back for 1 serve and thinly sliced the breast and doubled the amount of coating for my meat which was just the right amount though I think I was a little more generous with the parmesan and I thoroughly enjoyed this with my side of http://www.recipezazz.com/recipe/grilled-onion-hash-browns-24707, thank you Mikekey made for First Time tag game at FF&FF.
