Lemon Herb Seasoning

Cuisinart original


This seasoning blend is perfect for chicken pieces. You can either marinate with the herb seasoning (with oil) or you can add breadcrumbs and turn it into a fresh bread coating, excellent for cutlets. The breadcrumb mixture is delicious as a stuffing or topping for artichokes.
