This is incredibly easy and very good! I didn't have mushrooms, so I just omitted them, but I can't wait to try it again with them. The recipe reminded me of cordon bleu, but its much easier to make and tastes just as great!

This chicken was to die for. It will be on a regular rotation at our house. My family just LOVED it.

This was a yummy dish that holds 5 stars for presentation with company. Next time I might even add some herbs to the crumb mixture to give the dish even more kick.
