This recipe is a great way to make a chicken breast more exciting. The crumb adds great flavour and keeps the breast moist and succulent while cooking.
Importance of Salt & Seasoning
Before you start to create tasty food that’s full of flavour for those of you who haven’t yet discovered the importance of salt, I just wanted to add a few notes……
Being able to season properly with salt is the single most important skill a cook must have if they want their food to taste its best.
No matter how many fantastic ingredients and herbs you use in a dish, if the dish is under -seasoned it will taste bland and incomplete!
The dish obviously has to be made with the best ingredients, cooked in the best way and pared with complementing flavours but if it lacks seasoning it makes the difference between a good dish and a great dish!
Salt releases molecules within food that would otherwise be locked away. Some of these molecules are released into the air helping with the aroma of food and which is also important to our perception of flavour.
