    This recipe turned out really well. I did not have mayonnaise so the breading was not as even but it tasted great and had a great crunch. After we started gathering ingredients we realized we were out of bread crumbs, so my husband smashed up some leftover croutons and they worked great. We made some roasted potatoes on the side and it was a really nice weeknight meal.
