This was delicious. I also used Shake N Bake like previous reviewers. I have an older microwave so I cooked mine for 9 minutes than flipped the chicken and cooked for an additional 8 minutes. It turned out perfectly moist and flavorful.

I just made this for my family tonight. I was a bit leery making it in the microwave, but the chicken turned out well and all the boys thought that it tasted great.

I really enjoyed this and plan to make it again as it was a hit with my husband and 5yr old. I will probably tweek it a little by adding a small amount of bleu cheese chunks just to give it a tad more flavor because I felt it a little bland. I used Italian seasoned bread crumbs as my coating which gave it a nice bite. I opted to bake mine in the oven which of course takes to quick out of "Quick Cordon Bleu" but I had the time and I figured it would taste better baked instead of microwaved. Over all--good and easy!

My 3 boys loved this chicken. My youngest, who is super picky, asked for seconds. They did suggest I double the cheese next time (full slice instead of a half slice). I didn't realize chicken in the microwave could taste so good. I also used Shake n Bake for the coating mix.

I make this recipe often and my family loves it! I usually have all the ingredients on hand and it's quick to put together on busy weeknights.

I'm not positive what they mean, but I use a packet of Shake n Bake and it turns out good.
