It's nice to surprise the family with special meals like this during the week. I usually double the recipe so we can enjoy leftovers the next day. —Martha Stine, Johnstown, Pennsylvania

"Delicious recipe! The tomato is a nice juicy addition. Made as directed, except sprinkled about 1 teaspoon of additional Parmesan each piece of mozzarella. This volunteer field editor will definitely make again!"

"Ooo La la! What a great recipe. I loved the taste of the tomato in this. The only change I made is that I used Italian flavored crumbs. Reviewed by a Volunteer Field Editor"

"Loved the flavor of this and so easy to make but pounding the chicken that thin was not easy - when I make it again I will butterfly the chicken - otherwise loved this"

"My entire family really enjoyed these. Both my 4 and 2 year old cleaned their plates. The only change I made was with the butter. I had quite a bit of leftover garlic butter from earlier in the week and used that. I'll definitely use garlic seasoned butter again, as it was a great addition."

"Wha an interesting version of chicken cordon bleu!! I followed the recipe almost exactly, my chicken breasts were large, so I butterflied them before pounding. They stayed together pretty well, but most of the cheese melted and ran out. We just put it on top!! I would probably spice it up a little more , but definitely liked the addition of sage"

"I made this tonight the flavor just wasnt there for me. The mozzarella made it a little sweet, unlike the traditional swiss that is usually in it. Didn't seem to be enough cheese in it, mine pretty much went MIA. Defiantly room for altering and making it your own. Tomato addition was different sparked an idea."

"What an easy and delicious way to make chicken! The tomatoes added just the right amount of "sweetness" and juiciness and the butter added richness. I used Roma tomatoes and Italian style breadcrumbs as well as dried parsley (instead of fresh). My husband said "it's a keeper", so I will surely be making this again. Five stars for sure!"
