The peanut butter taste was not overpowering and it really held the breadcrumbs on the chicken nicely. We used boneless skinless chicken breast halves and reduced the cooking time a little.

came out burnt and no peanut butter taste...i think you should not use bread crumbs and use more peanut butter

Pretty good - though I overdid the breadcrumbs a bit. I should have just lightly rolled instead of entirely coated. I'll retry and also add some peanut bits to the breadcrumbs for fun.

A terrific recipe! The peanut butter and bread crumbs made a nice, crunchy crust on the chicken. Because of milk allergies in my family, I used an additional egg and 1/4 cup water in place of the milk called for in the recipe. Next time, I might experiment with more spices and some crushed peanuts in the bread crumb coating.
