    I made this recipe it is awesome! I did add whole wheat penne pasta with diced tomatos and some sauce. Which made it a few more calories but was a big hit! - 2/10/09

    This recipe was amazing. Even more suprising, i also made it with gluten free bread crumbs for my son. The rest of us had the original recipe. Both types came out so good. My whole family loved it! Remember to turn the chicken halfway through the cooking. Thanks for a winning recipe. - 1/4/09

    This is sooo good.. make sure you turn it halfway through, and I didnt do tha pepper flakes, but I did use just a pinch of cayenne pepper (powder) in the dry ingredients before I rubbed the chicken in it.. it gives it a little flavor kick! Im making it again tonight! - 12/16/08

    This was so awesome! I know people were confused on how to cut the chicken, but if you lay the chicken down on a cutting board and run a knife through the middle of it (from side to side), so you have two identical looking pieces, just thinner. Victory! The kids even asked me to make it tomorrow! - 7/21/08

    Very tasty, though I admit I added a bit of low fat shredded cheese on top about 10 minutes before it finished cooking to get a little bit more traditional taste. I used chicken tenders rather than chicken breasts because they are a bit cheaper. I also poured some marinara sauce over the top. - 7/27/08

    Just made this chicken dish. It was easy to make and tastes delicious. I will definitely be making this again. I did cut the chicken smaller and cooked for 10 minutes on one side and 5 minutes on the other. - 1/25/09

    I always dip the chicken in egg & milk (or egg beaters & splash of non fat milk. I also substitute part of the bread crumbs with flax and wheat germ, no one knows the difference. I have also frequently made it with low fat/non fat mozzerella cheese & sauce, or just cheese. :) - 8/19/09

    Tried this with real garlic instead of garlic powder. It was delish! I also save my whole grain bread ends and grate them for my own bread crumbs. Works and tastes great. - 3/5/09

    Absolutely delicious! Simple but full of flavor--I do agree with the poster who suggested flipping the chicken halfway through cook time, and also recommend adding the red pepper--gives it a nice kick. Will definitely want this one again! - 9/1/09

    This is great, very similar to a recipe I already use but with different seasonings. Which goes to show you can use different seasonings in some recipes for different flavors....this can be used with Creole, Italian and Mexican. - 6/17/09

    This was delicious! Forgot to slice thin so it took longer but I covered it so it didn't dry out. I'm definitely putting this in regular rotation for my family's meals. - 12/12/08
