FOR US, chicken breasts prepared this way is a nice reminder of when abalone was found in markets and menus on the West Coast. These days, abalone is scarce, so my son discovered a way to prepare chicken to resemble our favorite food. It's a wonderful, simple recipe. —Marian Platt, Sequim, Washington

"chicken Parmesan is one of my favorites. It always sounds so daunting.This is very easy and tastes great. I like to add Italian seasoning to the bread crumbs for extra flavor. These are good as sandwiches. Put it on crusty bread, add some provolone or mozzarella (you could brown it in the broiler) and some sauce. Yummy!"

"I place the chicken breasts between two pieces of waxed paper and flatten them with a rolling pin. I like this recipe with cracker crumbs, but I've found it more convenient to use packaged breadcrumbs (I like the Italian-seasoned kind). This easy recipe is the basis for all sorts of chicken dishes at my house. I sometimes serve it with spaghetti sauce."

"This coating made my chicken taste fishy. If you like fish, then it's probably good, but unfortunately I don't. I like the ideas of the saltines and parmesan so I might try it again, but cook it in a little butter instead of oil."

"This is so quick and easy to make. I often make it with chicken tenders, or I just use a chicken breast and cut it in half (I have trouble flattening chicken). Then we add rice, or potato salad, or basically any side, and we have a great meal!"
