    Can this be prepared the night before then just baked the next day

    • Hi Nancy, Yes it could but the breadcrumbs will absorb quite a lot of moisture so the chicken may may not brown & crisp in the same way. Also you may have to increase the cooking time by a few minutes.

    What can you serve with this? Mashed or otherwise potato what vegetable cause no salad needed,

    • Best of Bridge Editors says:

      Great idea, Laura! Roasted or mashed potatoes would both work perfectly. This recipe is very versatile and any cooked vegetable would work great. A lemon or chocolate dessert would pair well, however, any of your favourites would be a perfect ending to the meal.

    Is it an error in the book that the Phantom Rhubarb Muffins don’t show any baking powder in them? All the other muffin recipes do show usually 2 1/2 teaspoons. This recipe shows only baking soda – 1/2 tp.

      Hi Donna,
      Many muffin recipes include both baking soda and baking powder. In this particular recipe, the baking soda reacts with the sour cream to produce sufficient lift in the batter for a fluffy muffin. Happy baking!
