"Very easy. Can be served as a special or Sunday dinner. Would taste great with white wine. I like that this meal is not processed. No premade sauces or spice packages. This is as basic as it gets and taste delicious. I served with regular fettuccine noodles and cooked carrots. I also cut the chicken breasts in half before dipping them. This is a very filling meal"

"This recipe is wonderful. I always get rave reviews whenever I serve it. It's a family favorite. My daughters friends took this recipe with them to college. I always make more of the butter/seasoning coating than the recipe calls for. A definate keeper."
