I thought it would be a good idea to sear each side of the chicken in a pan after dipping in the cheese mixture but it wasn't. Bits of the mixture fell off, began burning, even when I added oil, and I smoked up the kitchen. I tried again in another pan with one thin piece and it cooked through and was crispy and tasty. The oven ones were also delicious but not crispy. Besides the smoke issue I really liked the recipe as written!
