      I halved this recipe and used chicken tenders; baked at 350 for 15 minutes, then topped with the spaghetti sauce and cheese and baked for another 5 minutes. I also used TSR Version of Kraft Shake'n Bake (Original) by Todd Wilbur instead of store-bought shake & bake. Chicken was moist, yummy and cheesy.

      I wish I could award more stars. I've used Shake n' Bake for years to put a quick meal on the table, and this takes a simple piece of chicken up to a whole different level. I made this last night at the end of a fairly busy, harried day. I made it for just the 2 of us, and used an 8x8 square baking pan which worked perfectly. I "guesstimated" the amount of coating mix and seasonings. I paired the chicken with green beans sauteed in olive oil with minced garlic, and what would otherwise have been a ho-hum "chicken breasts again" meal became special. The only change I made was to use 2 slices of cheese (they were square) because one didn't cover the chicken. DH raved yesterday, and was still raving today. I'd give this 10 stars if I could, for ease of preparation and "yumminess." You've gotta try this — you won't believe how good it is!

      Very good! A repeat keeper! Kittencal comes through again! I had never used "Shake n' Bake" before, so this was a great way for me to try it out. The chicken was moist and tender, and the sauce didn't quite make the breading mushy - it held up ok. I used folded slices of cheese over each chicken tender (I prefer those to whole breasts anymore) and it was wonderfully cheesy! From somewhere, it had a bit of a kick to it, and we determined that it was the black pepper (since the pasta sauce was known to be mild). Maybe the "Shake n' Bake" already had pepper in it, and I added more? I would probably not add any pepper the next time I make this. Seems that it would scale easily as well, if I were to use more chicken since I had left over sauce and cheese.
