    I made this without the parmesan cheese and it turned out really good. All seven kids ate it and said they want me to make it again sometime. It will probably be made a few times a year for something a little different.

    Very tasty! I used nearly 3.5 lbs of chicken breasts, so I tripled the other ingredients (except sauce…somehow I only used just over half a jar; could have used more but the taste did not suffer). I pounded the chicken to about 1/4-1/2” so they cooked faster than this recipe calls for. They were definitely over temp, but surprisingly tender in the end. Like other reviewers, I generously seasoned the chicken prior to egg washing/breading and I think it paid off flavor-wise. Served with angel hair pasta (using the remaining sauce), sautéed green beans w/ shallot and pancetta, and crusty bread. Plenty for our family of 5 plus leftovers. The kids and hubs enjoyed it.

    Used thicker chicken breasts and crushed up goldfish crackers instead of breadcrubs. I also set the oven to 425*F instead of 375*F. The chicken still got done in the allotted time and came out well. It might have been a little dryer than if I'd baked it at the suggested temp but this momma was in a hurry. As a food scientist, I checked the temperature several times to ensure the chicken reached the proper internal temp.

    Turned out great, a good meal by itself. You could add pasta and garlic bread if you’d like.

    It’s hard to go wrong with the flavor of chicken Parmesan, however I’m not a fan of spraying the chicken with cooking spray. It came out rather soggy.

    The combination of all the ingredients tasted delicious in every bite. I do however recommend adding a bit more salt, but other than that the chicken came out pretty good. My entire family loved the taste and suggested I keep this recipe. Will be making this again in the near future!

    This was excellent! The chicken was flavorful and juicy. The breading was crunchy and a perfect compliment to the sauce and cheeses. I will definitely make this again!

    Pretty good, I added sautéed spinach in between the sauce and cheese to get an extra vegetable.

    Very filling, very yummy!! This is a great recipe and it’s now my go-to for chicken Parmesan (my favorite dish). I’ve made this multiple times now and it always turns out great. I usually add noodles with mine, and use a full chicken breast. It cooks through a thicker breast perfectly for me, given the lengthy time the recipe says it needs in the oven.
