"Served this for company last night and it was really moist and good. The only thing I did different was to dust the chicken in flour before dipping in egg and rolling in bread mix. I used a can of Traditional spaghetti sauce "as is" and served the remaining sauce in a pitcher to be used over the pasta (just plain old spaghetti) if desired. The only other thing needed for the meal was a salad and dessert. Sure had raves. Will definitely serve this again."

"This was very good. I did make two adjustments though....I flattened the chicken so it was crispier and added some heat with red pepper flakes. :)"

"<p>Very easy to make with great results - I have made this one many times and it pleases even picky eaters.  I should add that I usually add extra spaghetti sauce to fully coat all of the pasta.</p>"

"Very tastey!! I baked mine covered at 350 for about 25 min, instead of cooking in skillet; then spooned sauce on top, plus cheese and baked uncovered till cheese melted."

"This is hands down a favorite!! The chicken is amazing! I use seasoned salt and make my own sauce, but you will be asked for this recipe from everyone you serve it to. Thank you!"
