    Great recipe! I used mozzarella cheese and more Italian seasoning than it called for. I had to cook the chicken for about 15 minutes longer than it said to because I started with slightly frozen chicken. I think that was just in my case though. My family really liked it.

    Y’all. It’s the easiest and tastiest chicken breast recipe I have attempted so far. Got picky eaters? My 2-year-old destroyed this chicken dish without any fuss! Great over a bed of rice and a salad or some sweet potatoes!

    Not bad but not the best chicken recipe I have ever made. I may make it again but tweak it to give it more flavor

    It came out great. I used roasted garlic rosemary and sea salt seasoning to add a bit more flavor, but followed everything else.

    It turned out great. We didn’t use all of the garlic, it looked like way to much for the chicken. Next time we make it we will use all the garlic it was definitely needed. The chicken was still great even without all of the garlic.

    We liked it. If I make it again, I will use less italian seasoning and a bit more garlic.
