This recipe is important to me because it was passed down to me by my mother. My mom wanted me to learn how to cook a few dishes before I left home for college. My favorite meal is her breaded chicken breasts, so naturally it was the first dish I asked to be taught. One of my favorite memories with her is making this dish together.
