Breadcrumb Crusted Chicken With Mashed Cauliflower & Potatoes

Now that Shane has gone back to work and it is only the kids and I for dinner I resort to mostly ‘kid friendly’ recipes.   This is a meal that we eat at least weekly while Shane is away for work:  Breadcrumb crusted chicken served, mashed potatoes (with cauliflower mixed in) gravy, and green beans.
