3. Cook in skillet on medium heat 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown on both sides.

Substitute: Substitute 1 Tbsp. MIRACLE WHIP Dressing for the butter.

How to Slice Large-Leafed Fresh Herbs: Slice large-leafed herbs such as basil and mint into thin strips by stacking several leaves on top of one another. Roll the stack lengthwise into a cylinder. Using a sharp knife, cut the cylinder crosswise to form fine shreds. This cut is called chiffonade. Be sure to use a sharp knife — a dull knife will bruise the leaves while cutting.
