This is a really great chicken recipe! The only change I made was I used seasoned salt and added garlic powder to the flour mixture. I also doubled the recipe and served the chicken for Saturday brunch. We really enjoyed this recipe, Thanks for sharing Marie!...Kitten:)

Another nice recipe to add to anyone's chicken repetoire. I prepared it just as posted, but only used two breast fillets. Easy, and quickly done. Flavor is according to my husband "fine" (as in "refined") and I must agree. Thanks for posting!

Marie, This is so delicious, DH said this recipe is a keeper. I do belive that we do like a lot of the same type of recipes. I made it just like the recipe said and served it with a salad and aspargus. Thank you for another delicious recipe. Barb
