Reviews for Cheesy Chicken Parmigiana
"Made this exactly as written. It was very very good, but took much longer for the chicken to cook. I probably only needed 1/4 of the sauce and that was for FOUR large chicken breasts. Think I'd go a liile less on the Italian seasoning next time too. All four of us enjoyed this and I will make it again"
"I followed the recipe, but used a little more bread crumbs as I used 4 chicken breast. I also overlooked the Parmesan cheese with the bread crumbs, so I put the cheese in the sauce. This thickened the sauce, & real tasty."
"Great idea using the Dressing. I'm making pot roast tonight but tomorrow, I'll put it to the test."
"I used reduced fat Italian dressing instead of the egg, and it worked great! Excellent recipe!"
