Day 150 : Spicy Spud Crusted Chicken

This is one of my favorite chicken recipes.  I came across it a long time ago and though the idea was a bit weird to me I fell in love with the taste and texture of this.  It really is easy to make and there is so much flavor!  I haven’t done it yet, but I bet you could do other seasoning blends too and get great results…. maybe italian, cajun, greek, etc.  For the potato flakes I like using regular Creamy Butter style, but you could try whatever you like.  Normally you would cut the chicken into strip sized pieces, but I just pounded mine out a little tonight and left them as whole breasts.
