Reviews for Family-Favorite Italian Chicken
"Great flavor!! My "I don't like chicken" 6y had 2 servings!!"
"Very good. Next time, after browning the chicken, I would bake them with a slice of mozzarella cheese on top so it melts easily with a little sauce on top for a few minutes"
"LOVED this! the best chicken parm i've made. i browned the chicken on both sides, then put them in baking pan, spooned sauce on sauce, topped with parm - then baked uncovered at 375 for 15 min. turned out fabulous!"
"two thumbs up! this dish is wonderful!!"
"I baked this instead of frying it, still very good. I would have liked more sauce to accompany the pasta."
