This recipe is easy, and it does taste authentic! It was so easy to prepare. I used a really good jar of spaghetti sauce that had some sausage and basil in it. The outcome was excellent! I served it with Mediterranean Vegetables and it was a great combination. Thanks for sharing this recipe because I will be using it again and again.

Excellent recipe - so easy to follow and tastes as good or better than restaurant fare. I use Classico sauce with tomato and basil, which complements the chicken very well. This has become my husband's favorite dish and he cannot get enough. Thank you for sharing.

A very nice way to make Chicken Parmesan. I made it exactly as written without any changes. My family enjoyed having provolone on top because it gave the chicken a rich flavor. It worked great and it was easy to put together.
