My husband hunts and I do my best to cook everything he brings home. This recipe was so easy, had a beautiful presentation and the guys absolute loved it. I measured the breading ingredients in the morning, skipping the Accent and adding Cajun seasoning, as well as chopping the vegetables. That evening I threw everything together and it was a hit!
