This is a fantastic recipe. Try this, you won't be disappointed. It has great flavor. Thanks for posting.
I'm glad I found this recipe on here. This is one of our family favorites. The chicken breading w. the parmesan cheese is really tasty (even without the sauce). The sauce is also good and has a very mild lemon flavor. I also made it gluten free using a combo of cornmeal and cornstarch instead of flour.
