Oh this was so yummy! I only made a tiny few adjustments =) My chicken breasts were a little small so I actually used 5 breasts. I also added salt, pepper and the garlic powder to the chicken while it was cooking in the pan and when I flipped it I did the same to the other side and instead of using canned tomatoes I diced up two large tomatoes and added some salt to them. I also didn't have sliced cheese so I used shredded =S Other than that I followed the recipe completely and this was SO YUMMY!! thanks!

I got this recipe straight from the South Beach cookbook and the cooking time for the chicken in the pan was 12 minutes per side instead of the 10 listed here. It sounded too long to cook chicken breasts to me, but I followed the instructions and the chicken ended up dry. The dish tasted great, but next time I would definitely cut the cooking time down to maybe 5-8 minutes per side.

Very easy and delicious. Like Barb Gertz, I tenderized the chicken first, just a bit, to flatten the breasts. I used regular fat ricotta and mozzarella and minced some fresh garlic to fry with the chicken, when became very fragrant and caramelized. Excellent, simple, a real keeper.

This was really good! I had it with buttered noodles and my friends and I really enjoyed it! Next time I may add in some crushed red pepper for a little pazazz!

This is a delicious chicken recipe, We are watching our Carbs, This really fit the bill. Very easy to make,I cut the recipe down for 2 people. I pounded the chicken breast as they were fairly thick, other than that I made it as the reciped stated, But, using more than 1 tablespoon crushed tomatoes as 1/2 cup is more than 1 tablespoon for 2 chicken breast, the orgional recipe says 1 cup for 4 breast, that is more than 1 tablespoon for each breast. The Ricotta cheese mixture is great. I will definetly be making this again. Will make a great dinner for guest. Thank you Carrie for posting the recipe.

This was very good. Instead of using crushed tomatoes, I used fresh sliced tomatoes. We really enjoyed this dish, low carb and all!

Very, good, quick & easy to prepare! I substituted Trader Joe's Tomato Basil Maranara sauce instead of the plain tomatoes AND my new favorite, Foster Farm's thin sliced chicken breast fillets.

I printed this out 6 years ago and finally made it last week. I did substitute a couple of things - but no loss of flavor! For the oregano and parsley, I just used Italian seasoning instead, and for the crushed tomatoes I used spaghetti sauce because I already had it opened. I liked that the chicken was browned beforehand to give it nice color and flavor. In addition, I cut the chicken in half so it was not so thick. I used more (used full fat) ricotta than called for and did not bother with the mozzarella cheese on top as I felt it was cheesy enough without it. So, this was a big hit, even with the picky teenager, plus, it's low carb, which is great. Thanks for posting this delicious recipe, CookbookCarrie, I will make it again soon!
