    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

    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
