This was wonderful! My family just loved it. The flavors were great and very eye appealing. The only change was I added sauteed onion with the garlic. Definitely a keeper - thanks!

Fast, easy, healthy, satisfying. The only thing I did that this recipe didn't call for was to do a light spraying of pam on the chicken pieces before seasoning and rolling in the bread crumbs. It seemed to help everything stick and stay on the chicken throughout the cooking process. I didn't use much...

Basic chicken cutlet, but I loved the spinach and tomato on top. Great flavor and added something extra and healthy to a basic meal.
