Sometimes you just need a simple and delicious recipe that you can whip up with almost no effort. This Breaded Chive Chicken recipe is perfect on every level. Because there is some frying involved, remember to turn on the range hood fan about 15 minutes before you start cooking and leave it running for about 15 minutes after you’re done cooking. That will ensure that as much of the fumes, smoke, grease, and odors have been drawn up and out of your kitchen.
This recipe is perfect in a sandwich the next day. It’s lovely in a picnic, too!
