      It does sound good....It is a step process and the recipe calls for the reader to slow down to process the steps. There is the sauce section, the breadcrumb section, and the preparing meat section. It did make sense to me. I will try this. Thank you.

          This looks so good and I'd love to try it butI'm realy confused about the ingredients list.It looks like you repeated it and in the middle it says 1 cup but doesn't say 1 cup of what? What is this sauce you are supose to pour over it? And did you mean to put ceyanne pepper in here? It just didn't sound right to me. I mean no offence at all because the reason I ask is that I'd realy like to try this but I need to be sure of these things before I try :)
