This had an OK flavor, but the texture of all those little seeds was a bit odd. Maybe it would have been a little better on boneless breasts. I doubt that I'll make this again. I think shawneesioux suggested grinding the seeds for the coating. I tried that in my mini food processor it was impossible to do. They just sort of flew around and didn't hit the blades. I guess some other sort of grinder is needed to do this.
