"I recall making this recipe when it was first featured in Taste of Home. What I'd done as an adjustment was to use 1 cup Progresso OR other brand of Italian bread crumbs to coat the chicken. I had baked the chicken at 350o F. for at least 1-1/2 hours or until poultry tested tender when I pricked it with a fork. I'd found this to be a very tasty dish! Thank you for sharing this with Taste of Home!
