    Doesn’t really need to be seated that long as it dries the meat out a little. It gets crispy in the broiler anyway. Otherwise delicious

    This is an awesome dish. Taste like you slaved away in the kitchen but, really easy and relatively quick to make. Perfect party food for a crowd or for our family something we can heat up all week.
