Very delicious and easy to make. Cooked it even lighter by totally skipping the coating. Cooked the chicken 10 minutes, turned it, covered it with sauce, cooked it until a thermometer registered 160°. Placed cheese on top and baked until cheese melted. Sliced the chicken, served slices over chickpea flour pasta. Will put this recipe on my keeper list!

I used Panko and minced garlic. Very moist and yummy chicken. I would definitely sub in my homemade sauce.

Don't expect the breading to get too crispy, but it's still really good. My husband isn't generally a fan of chicken parm, but he really liked this. I didn't measure the cheese, I just put some on each piece of chicken... we generally find that more is better when it comes to cheese!
