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

"I made this tonight, using cracker crumbs instead of bread crumbs, and reducing the salt accordingly. It's a really good recipe! The coating stays on, even when the chicken is sliced on the plate. The only thing I would change is that the flavors came out milder than I expected, so next time I will add more mustard, some garlic, and perhaps some poultry herbs."

"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."

"Great recipe. Thinner chicken breasts do work better. I cook my chicken, top with provolone cheese add some spaghetti sauce and noodles and it makes an awesome chicken parmesan."

"If you are looking for a way to prepare chicken that is quick and really tasty this is it! I make this at least once a week. I use thinly sliced chicken breasts and it cooks in about 25 mins."
