This is very easy to make and it tastes great! Originally from Southern Living. You may need to add another egg if your chicken breasts are large.

This was excellent!!! I used a parmesan and romano blend and also used Bertolli Olive Oil and Garlic sauce. I did not have any mozzarella Cheese for the top but I used extra sharp cheddar and it tasted fabulous... Thanks for this recipe I have made it twice already... ;)

this was really really easy and quick. I didnt have Italian breadcrumbs, only plain - so I seasoned it myself w/italian seasoning and garlic. I live on egg substitute and it worked fine for the eggwash. I just used jar sauce, un-doctored, and it was sufficient. Served atop tri colored pasta with some steamed italian green beans added in the pasta for some green. Also served with an italian salad. I also thought, to make it quicker, I might whip up a batch of the crumb/parm cheese mix and store in an airtight container for quick weeknight use. Thanks for the submission!

This was awesome as others are stating. I put some sauce on the bottom of baking dish, added chicken and topped with more sauce and a combo of prov and mozz. Used seasoned panko. Simple and delish. Love me some Italian food!
