Q&A: How come when I cook chicken the bread crumbs burn but the chicken doesn’t cook enough?

Question by andrewyalee: How come when I cook chicken the bread crumbs burn but the chicken doesn’t cook enough?
I am cooking a recipe from Betty Crocker, the Ranch Chicken, and when I cook it on Medium-High heat, the (store bought) bread crumbs burn but the chicken isn’t cooked through. Being a *really* novice cook, I’m freaking out because the crumbs are black, but the chicken inside isn’t cooked at all! What gives? What am I doing wrong? Do I need to flatten the chicken?

I always put the chicken in for awhile, then spread the bread crumbs on after the chicken is almost done. Then the chicken and the bread crumbs crisp up
