I didn't use the mozzarella cheese, as the recipe never said what to do with it. I'm assuming the intention is to lay the cheese over the chicken breasts, which seems counter productive, as it would make the coating on the chicken mushy and keep it from crisping up like it should. I used bone in chicken breast. I assume this is what the recipe intends, since the long bake time would be too much for boneless, skinless chicken. I pulled the skin off some of the breasts to reduce the fat, and both types turned out moist and delicious. We used 6 HUGE chicken breasts. Only 4 fit in a 9 by 13 pan! The other two went into a square pan, and I made 1/2 a recipe of sauce for them, with chicken broth instead of wine. Both ways turned out well. The bake time was pretty close to right on for the large chicken breasts, so if using smaller ones, be sure to start checking the chicken before the hour is up. I marinated the chicken for about 6 hours in some white wine, salt, pepper, and fresh thyme. I also added salt to the bread crumbs and salt and pepper to the flour, because our chicken breast was not injected with any sort of salt solution, and the recipe did not call for any salt. I think it might be pretty bland otherwise. We served this with some broccoli pesto linguini and a green salad.
