Fish or chicken in breadcrumbs, with seeds

Here's a quick tip for sprucing up fish or chicken cooked in egg and breadcrumbs/flour. Add a few poppy seeds and some sunflower seeds to the flour or breadcrumbs ... delicious.

I shamelessly pinched this idea from Marks and Spencer, who sell fillet of cod lightly dusted in seasoned flour with sunflower millet and poppy seeds. I just don't keep millet seeds in the larder - can anyone tell me if they're worth seeking out?

Wow, that's such a coincidence, I've just breadcrumbed some chicken for tonight! I added herbs and parmesan to mine, I'm going to serve it with melted mozzarella and tomatoes.

Breaded is so nice. Never seen a millet seed.

Sam, your chicken sounds great - just like Tanna, I think breaded is so nice ... did you bash the chicken flat with a hammer? I've recently bought one, and love using it ;)
