"This is very tasty-I've made it now 2 times. Last time was for family Christmas supper. Everyone liked it and ask for the recipe. To speed up prep time and make a little healthier, I used a little extra olive oil to grease pan and put chicken in to coat both sides then into crumb mixture. (Second time had more chicken and used a little Italian Seasoned Bread Crumbs to stretch the coating mixture.) Baked in oven on convection at 400 for approx.14 minutes. WONDERFUL"

"I wasn't really impressed with this one. Was edible but the spices over powered the meat."

"There's just too much oregano in this for me. I might make it again if I only use a tbsp of oregano. It was just too overpowering for me."
