    I loved this recipe but wonder how you figure 196.1 calories per serving when you don't measure the chicken? Chicken breasts can widely vary in size. Should I have used one cup of chicken?

    This is so good! I cooked the whole chicken breast and will have the other half tomorrow. Hot and spicy is my type of food. I didn't use the salad dressing because it didn't need it with the parmesan cheese and warm chicken breast.
