For baking: Use 1 Tbsp milk, 1-2 Tbsp broth as needed and coat chicken with milk/broth mixture and then roll in grissini mixture. Bake for 20-30 minutes. Finish under broiler about 5 minutes If you get a small spray bottle and fill it with chicken broth, you can spray chicken broth on your chicken as well to help it bake.
For Frying: Preheat nonstick skillet to med. High or oven to 350 degrees. Salt and pepper both sides of chicken. Put grissini, seasoning and herbs into a bowl or on a plate. Use a shallow bowl.
