This recipe took 1st place in the Iowa State University cafeteria contest. It was posted in the Des Moines Register in May 1991. It's a bit different using cornflake crumbs. Note: You may need to adjust baking times accordingly if using boneless pieces of chicken. ISU's baking time may be too long!

Oh My, this is such a keeper Kathy. Loved the italian taste this you get from this chicken recipe. Followed your recipe exact, but because my oven runs hot, only needed to bake for 1 hour. Served with mashed potatoes. Wonderful crispy/crunchy breading that's so tasty. Just wish I could give more stars!! I am so glad I tagged this for 123HitWonders. A definite keeper in my chicken cook-book here on Zaar. ~

Fabulous! Moist and tender chicken with a nice breading served with a delightful sauce. A+ all the way! I loved how the breading actually stayed on the chicken! We served it over whole wheat spaghetti noodles! Yummy!! Thanks DuChick! Made for AU/NZ Recipe Tag #14.
