These were tasty. I subbed fat-free saltine crumbs for the breadcrumbs because that was what I had. I also omitted the melted butter. I just sprayed the chicken with cooking spray on top. The chicken was very moist, but it was done in about 25 minutes instead of the stated 40. That may be because my chicken was thin though. We also thought there was too much paprika for us, but that's a personal preference. We weren't too familiar with the flavor of paprika, so this was a great chance for us to taste it! Thanks for the recipe! I will try it again with the breadcrumbs.
