Very Tasty! I changed it a little. I used turkey bacon, sliced red onions, chopped instead of minced garlic (we love garlic!), didn't have parsley and used freshly grated romano instead of cheddar. I just browned the chicken and then finished it in the oven with the toppings. Leftovers were awesome! This recipe is now a regular in our house.

We enjoyed this. I followed the recipe as written other then I forgot to add the olive oil to the pan when cooking the chicken. I added some garlic powder to the chicken instead of the garlic cloves. I also didn't bake this, I cooked the whole meal on the stove in one pan. I didn't add the optional parsley. We thought this was very flavorful and we enjoyed it.

Yum! I took some ideas from other recipes & sprinkled the chicken w/ garlic powder & seasoning salt before baking. I served it on wheat buns w/ thousand island salad dressing which gave it a great kick. I also used slices of swiss cheese instead of cheddar. Tasted like a resturant chicken sandwich! Would also taste well without the bun. Thank you!
