"This is an all time favorite in our house. We add a little paprika for added flavor. Very good!"

"So good! My family LOVES this recipe. I've made it a few times before but am finally getting around to sharing my thoughts. I followed the recipe mostly but used one of my own seasoning blends and didn't have sesame crackers on hand so I used crushed saltines instead. Turns out no matter what crackers/pretzels/bread crumbs I have on hand, it always turns out tasty! :)"

"I think this is one of my favorite chicken recipes. We make it on a regular basis. Make sure to use the sesame crackers, I have tried a couple of different kinds of crackers and the flavor is just not as good."

"Fantastic Recipe. I used Italian Herb crackers from Hannaford and barely needed any spices. Very versatile idea. Many possible tastes. Turned out very crispy and moist."

"My son, who doesn't like anything, loved these! I didn't have the sesame crackers so I substituted Ritz whole wheat. I also used chicken tenderloins instead of the breasts. Very tender and tasty!"
