Tried this recipe tonight. Had to sub the Italian panko with lemon pepper panko and the parm cheese with cheddar - all we had on hand. Everyone loved it. The pasta however...bombed. After originally tasting it (no flavor, just straight up basil in my opinion), we added some cheddar cheese, salt and pepper to it. Helped it some but I would not eat it again (my boys liked it alright but the hubby and I said no.) I'd cook the chicken again. The spare sauce will be stored, not put on pasta.

We Really, REALLY wanted to like this, but the sauce itself was really bland. Before coating the chicken I added the garlic powder and tasted the coating--then added black pepper, onion powder, paprika AND parsley. Then coated and baked as normal. I realized after I had coated with the panko that I had forgotten the melted butter mixed in with the Progresso mixture. My chicken didn't crisp up, so I had to put it under the broiler to prevent a soggy mess. The remaining soup for the sauce was WAY too bland to be used as sauce for pasta, so I sauteed some onion and garlic cloves and once that soup was warm used my hand blender to mix it all together. The taste was still off--very much tasted like something from a box or a can, even after increasing spices. It didn't do anything for the family--there was no 'wow' factor...the kids and hubby told me they honestly prefer oven 'fried' chicken fingers over this. I'm willing to agree--so much less work involved in those. I'm 90% certain we won't be having this again.

I used butter buds instead of butter to dredge the chicken but otherwise followed the recipe. The sauce is quite tasty. I did find the chicken to be very anemic looking after the stated baking time so I broiled it for a few minutes to get it browned.. since we eat with our eyes first

My family loved this recipe! We marinated the chicken in the sauce for 30 minutes before cooking and used cooking spray on the panko crumbs to increase crunch. This recipe was eaten well my my kids, indulged by me and in-hailed by my husband. Thank you for a great recipe. Will make again.

This was made tonight with one package of Costco's chicken and half the other ingredients. I had some Progresso Lemon Pepper Panko crumbs from a while back, and since they are VERY salty, I mixed them with Progresso's regular Italian bread crumbs and no parmesan. Otherwise, I followed the recipe as stated. To my pasta I added a whole bunch of the Starter and a lot of parmesan. This is a very easy very tasty meal. The recipe didn't really use very much of the can of the Starter, so I'll have to see how it freezes for another meal another time. Thanks, Progresso, for a wonderful meal!

My first Progresso Recipe Starters cooking sauce recipe … Crispy Garlic Parmesan Chicken. The Chicken was delicious. Pasta??? Not so much. I made the recipe exactly as written. As far as speed and ease goes dinner was on the table within 35 minutes and I plan to add this to my Fast Night Meals Pinterest board. If I were to use this canned sauce on pasta again I would add some fresh herbs and more seasoning. I felt it didn’t have a fresh taste and almost crossed the line to a “Canned” taste. Chicken 5 stars… Pasta, 2 ½ stars.

I liked the chicken part of this dish. It was delicious! I served the remaining sauce over penne pasta but didn't particularly care for it. Fast and easy though.

I follow the recipe exactly and used bowtie pasta...we really liked it and it was so quick to bake the chicken in the oven! Thanks for the great recipe, Progresso!
