    Really good. I made this for dinner last night. Instead of pan frying the chicken I baked it in the over at 375 for 20 minutes, turning in between. I also used more sauce than was called for. It was delicious and I would make again - 11/1/10

    This was awesome. Hubby and kids loved it as well. Omitted the olive oil and baked the chicken at 350 for 15 minutes on a "Pam'd" cookie sheet. I haven't really fried anything since starting Spark. I wonder how many calories I saved by not using oil... - 6/2/10

    I cut the sodium a little by just using garlic pwdr. Parm cheese is pretty salty itself. I also broiled the chic instead of frying it. Very good! LARGE serving. Was very full w/ just 1 serving and some cantaloupe. - 4/22/10

    Exellent! In my version I used egg whites/fat free milk for the wash, added Italian seasoning to the crumbs, and eliminated the oil by putting the chicken chunks on a cookie sheet, spraying lightly with Pam and baking. I also added more sauce after reading reviews. Great recipe!! - 10/26/09

    YUMMY! Thank you so much for this incredible recipe! I served it as the main course for my dinner party last night and everyone now wants the recipe. It was delicious and filling. Made two because I was having 12 people and we only ate one. I will be making it ahead of time and freezing it. - 10/4/10

  • Super delicious!! I also agree with more sauce. I omitted the milk and eggs and just shook the chicken with the bread crumbs and spices. I baked the chicken first at 375 for 10 minutes a side. I also added more sauce - I used the reduced calorie Prego. Topped it off with some basil and parsley. - 11/6/12
