You can most certainly use skin on chicken pieces for this recipe, but adjust baking time. This is easy and delicious! If you prefer a spicy sauce, then add in some crushed red pepper flakes to the tomato sauce, also if you want more sauce, then add about another 1-1/2 cups tomato sauce.

  1. Grease a shallow baking dish.

Very good! I added crushed red pepper to the sauce as you recommended. Since only 1/2 of the breadcrumb mixture stuck to the chicken, I also sprinkled on more garlic powder and Italian seasoning on the sauce to make sure there was enough flavor. Very easy and delicious. Thanks for sharing!

I kept meaning to make this recipe, but for one reason or another, would change my mind. I finally made it and it was really good. I only used 3 chicken breasts, and scaled down the rest of the ingredients accordingly. I probably used more cheese than what it called for. I also used a sweet onion. I served it with noodles. I will definately be making this again. Thanks Kittencal
