The flour/egg/bread crumb process made the chicken have a great crust and flavor. I used chicken broth instead of the wine for the sauce and added a tsp of cornstarch to thicken it. My whole family loved this recipe - I will put it in my keeper file!

This was a great recipe, and just what Jude said, quick and easy for a week day dinner. I made no changes to the recipe, and although I normally do this type of crumbed food in the oven, the lovely cheesey crumbs stayed on just fine. It's not overly saucy, but the wine sauce at the end just helps to make it juicy. Make sure to serve the lemon wedges-they go so well.
