    HOLY COW! This is probably my favorite recipie. I live alone so I cut the recipie in half and had the other breast the next night, it keeps pretty well. I also used 3oz of cheese instead of 4 for the perfect cheesey coating! - 1/13/09

    This one is one of my families favorite dishes. It so easy and tastes really good. The only thing different I did was add a can of crused stewed tomatoes to the pasta sauce. It is wounderfull with asprugus or green beans with a couple of spoonfull of pasta sauce mixed in. Its really good. - 4/9/09

    5 Stars for quick, easy and it tastes really good. My husband always complains when I serve chicken, but not this time. He did not say a word about it which means he liked it.

  • Such a simple dish - only 3 main ingredients and only took 15-20 minutes to make. I wasn't going to try the dish until I read the reviews and I must say the reviews were spot on! This was great!
