EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Before work in the morning, flatten chicken breasts, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate. Make the breading mixture and cover. If you have time, you can make the sauce, too, then refrigerate. When you get home, sit down to dinner in less than 15 minutes!

Cut the chicken crosswise into 1/2-inch slices before serving, and garnish with maraschino cherries.

Look for jars of grated gingerroot in water in the produce section. The fresh flavor and convenience can’t be beat. You can also grate fresh gingerroot ahead of time and freeze, then use as needed.
