I use this chicken recipe for a lighter version of my Chicken Parmesan because I like the fact that you bake the chicken instead of pan-frying. The chicken is so moist, tender and delicious! I use fresh grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, and seasoned Italian bread crumbs. The last five minutes of baking I top the chicken with spaghetti sauce, mozzarella cheese and a sprinkle of additional Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese.

This was OK. I added oregano, red pepper flakes, basil and garlic powder but still found it a little bland. The breading didn't crisp like I would have liked. One issue that wasn't the recipe's fault was the store bought tomato sauce was exttemly bland as well.

I thought this recipe was extremely easy to make with an exceptional outcome. It looked like a fancy cook made it instead of me. I did make a few changes, not in the basic recipe, but added a spoonful of spaghetti sauce and mozzarella cheese to the top of the chicken pieces, placed them back in the oven to melt the cheese. They turned out great!!! I served it with salad and a side of buttered/garlic noodles...and it is now the meal I take to friends. Very good.

I make a Parmesan Chicken that is almost identical to this one that my family LOVES! I cut boneless, skinless chicken breasts into 3-4 pieces and pound them out really thin, salt & pepper them, dredge in flour, then beaten egg and then in the breadcrumb/parmesan mixture. Fry them up in 1/2 butter and 1/2 olive oil till golden brown! Don't over cook them or the meat gets really dry. If you do this one right the outside is very crispy & crunchy with a moist, juicy, tender inside. One of my families favorite summertime comfort foods, hands down! Serve with a chilled creamy potato salad and corn on the cob, YUM! The ultimate comfort food!

This definitely is quick, easy and delicious! Great recipe for a lighter version of a classic dish. I used Italian style bread crumbs and along with other ingredients I added some garlic. I topped this with a tomato cream sauce and some mozzarella cheese during the last five minutes and served with angel hair pasta! Perfect with a garden salad and warm bread!

I have made this seversl times and have found it is even easier if you use the Italian bread crumbs, cheese, and eggs to coat the chicken then you don't even have to use seasoning, it tastes great.

I liked this one a lot. Very simple yet delicious. I added onion and garlic powders to the breadcrumb mixture which kicked the yummy factor up a notch. Note,however, that even slight overbaking will cause the chicken to dry out a lot so stick to the 35 minutes.

I made this for my boyfriend and his family and it was a hit!!! I mixed 2 tablespoons of chicken stock powder and 1 teaspoon of salt with the dry ingredients. It gave a little extra oomph to a what is a great, easy and cheap meal. I fried up some beans, red bell peppers and carrots for the side. Finding nice recipes like this is why i love allrecipes.com
