    I pounded out the chicken breasts based on previous reviews that said it took longer to cook than 30 minutes. It still took longer and I ended up using a little olive oil and pan frying them to get a crust and cook them through. The flavor was ok but I like Chicken Parmesan better.

    I also added parmesan and italian seasoning and salt & pepper after cooking. Took longer to bake but was delicious. Making it with spaghetti tonight

    This recipe is excellent. I used it for a Sunday get-together, and my guests loved it!

    The flavor was pretty good. For some reason or other, it took longer than the 20-25 minute cooking time (larger chicken pieces? oven issues?). Will try again.

    this recipe has way too much mayonnaise in it. This was not good. The mayonnaise/milk mixture needs to be thinner and not so goopy.
