The savory coating on this chicken has the satisfying flavor of Parmesan cheese. It's easy enough to be a family weekday meal yet impressive enough to serve to guests. When I make this chicken for dinner, we never have leftovers. -Schelby Thompson, Camden Wyoming, Delaware

"The flavor was good, but the coating was so mushy. I even tried to broil it for a minute to see if it would crisp up a bit. No luck."

"This chicken was very moist, but to me it just didn't have enough bold flavors. It just tasted kind of blah. Sorry."
