My family loves chicken parm, but I certainly do not love the work of breading and cooking the cutlets. When we want a quick version for a weeknight dinner, I've been making just chicken baked with sauce and cheese. So tonight I decided to try this version, and everyone gave it an enthusiastic thumbs up. I used garlic and cheese croutons, just the store brand. It is true that after they bake and soak up some sauce, you can cut up your piece of chicken, and take a forkful of chicken plus some of the baked croutons, and you get a flavor of breaded chicken parm. So this simple addition to my quick meal worked out very well for us.
I didn't give it the full 5 stars only because it really isn't "the real deal", and there was some unevenness in the outcome of my crouton layer - some had taken up sauce and were tasty, but others hadn't really gotten any sauce. So to get the desired flavor you need to cut up and stir things around to mix the chicken, sauce and croutons together.
We'll definitely make this again, and maybe with some repeat experience with it, I'll get more consistent texture throughout.
