"My husband loves this, he says it tastes like his favorite restaurant chicken from when he was little. I started subbing crushed cornflakes for the bread crumbs, and we like it even better!"

"Very tasty, my little brother loved this recipe (which is quite an accomplishment for me!) The only issue I had (and this happens with most breaded chicken anyway) is that the breading kind of fell off while we were eating it. It didn't really stick to the chicken after it was cooked. Oh well, still a good recipe!"

"I used seasoned bread crumbs and shredded parmesan cheese for this recipe.

Then I used the remaining cheese and bread crumb mixture and added tuna&Miracle Whip--it made a delicious tuna salad sandwich!"
