Breadcrumbs Conversion Question...

hey all...i am making a chicken breast (baked) dinner tonight that calls to be topped with homemade breadcrumbs. i dont have the time for this, so i am gonna substitute with storebought.

the recipe calls for:

4 slices of stale wheat bread,
torn
1/4 cup and 2 tablespoons
grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh
thyme
1/8 teaspoon pepper

Pulsed in a food processor until crumbs.

Can anyone give me an idea of how much canned breadcrumbs this comes to (roughly)??

I will gladly post the whole recipe if that will help..

TIA!!

I wouldn't worry about trying to figure out a conversion. Just take a handful and top the chicken with then. You will be able to tell by sight if you don't have enough. I would guess a small handful per breast maybe.

dito... just put a nice even layer over the top. If you wanted to doctor the bread crumbs up a little you could throw in a little fresh parmesan cheese into the breadcrumbs.

I almost always use more bread crumbs than a recipe calls for, just love those little guys too bits. They are certainly something where 95% of the time you can just eyeball it and things usually turn out excellently

LOL I do the same thing. I also use the seasoned breadcrumbs a lot even when it calls for regular. Not always as sometimes the flavors just won't work, but often times they do.
