So, this chicken is crusted by the character from “WKRP in Cincinnati?” Your great-uncle? Nope, this herb is parsley, that delicious greenery that was just a stalk on a plate for garnish when your Great Uncle Herb started going to restaurants. No longer! With crunchy panko, parsley coats the chicken with delightful flavor and crunch. As God as our witness, we think this meal can fly into your heart.
