MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 22, 2014

Okay, I worked in commercial kitchens for six years and while I am not the most creative ad libbing in the kitchen, I have solid fundamental skills. I thawed some chicken and prepared to make this for my girlfriend and I. We had other options, but this recipe sounded great.

Followed the recipe to a tee and like a couple others, all of the Parmesan goodness hardened to a crusty mess at the bottom of my all clad sautée pan. No crust left whatsoever. Seeing as I had just detailed the kitchen the day previous, I was livid. Perhaps the recipe really calls for the powdered Parmesan cheese topping, I grated my own cheese and made a mess. The chicken, of course, was then bland coming out of the baking dish. I dumped some canned tomato sauce on top and ate my angry feelings. Be forewarned!

I added 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning to the flour mixture, for more flavor. However, I've never made such a messy dish as this one. All of the cheese stuck to the pan instead of the chicken. I won't make this dish again.

The cheese stuck to the pan instead of the chicken! But nevertheless--it was still pretty tasty and easy!
