Looking for a great Italian dish without all the fuss?,well my friends look no further because you just found it.This is how I made this wonderful recipe.I used three really large chicken breast halves,for easier clean up I added all the breading ingredients in a plastic zip-lock bag.Since I didn't have any olive oil I used canola.And I didn't have any Italian-style tomato sauce I used a 26 ounce jar of sweet tomato basil and omitted the water.And as another chef had posted about the cheese sticking to the pan, I decided to just sprinkle whatever amount of cheese we wanted onto each serving.Thank you for posting this will be made again."Keep Smiling:)"

This was a really tremendously good dinner served over small shell pasta. I found it a tad difficult to work with (as the cheese stuck to the bottom of the pan and needed to be scraped off) but super tasty. I used spaghetti suace as I didn't have Italian style sauce, and I used 2 jumbo breasts instead of 4. I do think, to stretch the meat, that I'd use a little less next time and cut it into cubes. Great dinner!

Very good! It tastes like a fast and easy chicken parmesan. I ended up using tricolored rotini for the pasta. It looked strange but it tasted good!
