I've been on a mission to make the best breaded tenderloin. In the process I have created a breading mix that is really great. The seasoning is not overwhelming and the result is a crispy crust. If you don't want crispy, omit the corn meal. I love this! Use only what you need and keep the remainder in an airtight container. I am a Penzys spice fan. Mural of Flavor is a blend of "spices, shallots, onion, garlic, lemon peel, citric acid, chives and orange peel". If you don't have Mural of Flavor I suggest adding a bit of Italian blend spice.
