    This was awesome! It tasted like something from an Italian restaurant. Next time I think I'll skip breading the chicken and just sprinkle a little romano or parmesan over the chicken before serving. - 2/12/09

    Bake the chicken instead of frying it. Just give it a quick spray with olive oil Pam. Cuts out a lot of calories without losing the taste. - 2/3/11

    Really Tasty. I used boneless, skinless thighs, and halved the olives, for more texture, and used fresh basil (which grows really well indoors in winter!) - 1/8/09

    We work at eatting 6 or less grams of fat, thus, I will use 1-2 t olive oil, no romano cheese nor bread crumbs. Sub stewed tomatoes for diced - tomatoes+simmered onions.After everything has cooked, I will add 1 t. grated parmesan cheese to each chicken entre. Serve w whole wheat pasta, & salad. - 1/8/09
