What is in Poultry Seasoning?

I used poultry seasoning in this recipe, which is a combination of dried basil, rosemary, sage, marjoram, thyme and oregano.

You can get some on Amazon, but even if you don't have poultry seasoning on hand, you can easily swap in any combination of these herbs, or even just one of them, and it will still turn out great!

Delicious but the panko breadcrumbs were soggy underneath? I put the chops onto a rack. What did I do wrong?

This recipe is the bomb! So so easy, really no fail. I used spicy brown mustard and mixed panko with regular bread crumbs. Added a little Italian seasoning because I didn’t have chicken seasoning and it was delish!
