      This was REALLY good! I was tired of doing chicken the same old way so I came on here and started looking.I stumbled upon this and was happy I did! It was super easy to make and tasted delicious. the only thing I added was that when I finished I had leftover breading, so I sprinkled it as a layer on the bottom of the pan. not sure if it added anything, but it looked nice. Thank you for sharing this recipe, I look forward to making it again!

      This was SO GOOD! The only change I made was to double the parmesan cheese and I went ahead and used the optional 1/2 tsp. of salt. This could put Shake and Bake out of business! Thanks for sharing! UPDATE: It has been several years since I first reviewed this recipe, and I now have two small children. I make this recipe often and my kids love it! Panko bread crumbs really make a difference and I've found that I can really tweak this recipe to accommodate just about anyone's tastes. We still really enjoy the double parmesan and a double dip in the bread crumbs. Occasionally, I will add Italian seasonings or poultry seasoning. Thank you again for a truly wonderful and EASY recipe!
