Oh, wow! This was super! I modified this a little bit, as I'm on a reduced fat diet. I used reduced fat swiss cheese, fat/calorie free butter spray, fat free croutons (crumbed in a food processor), and sprinkled a wee bit of parmesan cheese into that mix. I also baked it at 350 in the oven for about 30 minutes, and wow! My family scarfed this down like they hadn't eaten for a week, so needless to say, it's a saved recipe, and a big "make again" at our place! Thanks, looneytunesfan!

This was super and is now a regular at our house. I have found it fun and interesting to vary the flavor of the chicken coating. Hubby likes the spicy one the best.

This was a very good, simple recipe. I made it for lunch today and I had all the ingredients on hand already...I love recipes like that. The only change I made was that I used Provolone as well as the Swiss cheese. Everyone in my family was very happy with this recipe. Thank you!
