This was a hit at my house. However, I cooked it in the oven not the microwave at 350 until the chicken was done.

Very good and after a bit of time pounding the chicken it was very quick to make. I added a few garlic croutons when making the bread crumbs and I think that upped the taste. Not a crispy coating when done in the microwave, but very tasty. My family liked it.
