Really good chicken Parmesan recipe. I recommend flipping the chicken before adding the sauce and cheese so that it is not raw looking like in the picture. Also, I did not pour the sauce over the chicken but around it, so that it would be a little crispy. I served this with spaghetti tossed with extra sauce, garlic bread and Caesar salad.

Yummy! Very simple recipe. I like to add extra pasta sauce to my pasta and give it a toss before plating it.

This is a very good, very simple recipe. However, I changed a few things to suit it better to my taste. First, I used 3/4 cup bread crumbs and 1/4 monterey chicken seasoning. Also, I added just a bit of butter to the pan during baking to keep the chicken moist. Finally, I added just a bit of mexican style shredded cheese for a different flavor.Overall, this is a great recipe and my wife loved it. I will definitely try it again!

Very easy and very tasty. I used mozzarella and also some 6 cheese Italian blend I had. Served over whole wheat spaghetti. A quick, easy version of chicken parmasan. Thanks for sharing!

This was really tasty! I cooked some fettuccine, then put it in a casserole dish sprayed with pan spray. Topped it with the baked chicken, then poured the pasta sauce over all, covered with cheese and extended the 2nd cooking time to 30 minutes instead of 12-14. The sauce and juices from the chicken ran into the pasta, giving it a great flavor boost. Mine doesn't look like the picture, but the variation worked well for us. Served it with a spinach salad topped with feta, sliced salami, and pepperoncini.

Even though we didn't have the seasoned bread crumbs, normal bread crumbs worked well too!
