I was getting a little tired of eating chicken the other day and thought about this wonderful dish that I make when friends come over. And then I remembered the breadcrumbs. Ugh. So I thought, could oat bran be a good substitute for breadcrumbs? The answer was a surprising yes! Fresh lemon, lots of garlic and parsley from my garden. Wonderful.
