My breading didn't stick to the chicken very well - maybe b/c I used egg substitute? But otherwise, very good!

I baked the chicken at 375 for 30 mintes and put the cheese on and baked it until the cheese melted.

This recipe is awesome. The chicken was so juicy. My husband hates chicken breasts. He says it's to dry, but he wants me to make this again. Just delicious. Thanks for the recipe.butterfly pie

Try with SWISS CHEESE - should be tasty - also - use some of the melting kinds of italian cheeses - like PROVOLONE or ASSIAGIO or MOZZARELLA !!

Thanks for this recipe. I'm going to have to try it. I have the meunster cheese, I have the mushrooms ~ in fact I have everything but the chicken! But that is easily remedied. Looking forward to this one.Lorraine
