I used chicken breasts only and baked it for about 30 minutes. Neither my husband nor I like the taste and the chicken was overcooked and dry. I think it was the parm cheese flavor we disliked with the chicken.
This was a great dinner! I didn't have instant potato flakes on hand, so I used Italian bread crumbs. It was easy and delicious.
The whole family really liked this crispy flavorful chicken. Be careful not to put in extra garlic salt "for good measure"(as we sometimes do) because it is just right the way it is. Thanks for this new family favorite!
