"I didnt have the cream of chicken soup mix or the italian salad dressing mix on hand so i used 2/3 cup of seasoned bread crumbs and cut the flour to 1/2 cup and it tasted great! I alsol used boneless skinless chicken breasts and cut them into strips. Would still like to try it using all the original ingredients."

"I first made this recipe and used boneless skinless chicken. I had to keep drizzling butter to cover the breading. It came out good. My mother made it with a whole chicken in parts and it was hard and flavorless. Boneless skinless chicken is the way to go!"

"The picture here looks nothing like what came out of the oven. The coating didn't come out very crisp & it was kinda mushy. I probably won't make this again."
