    Very tasty, moist and (the best part) easy to make! For thicker breasts, I would bake it closer to 20-22 minutes or just cut them horizontally in half to cook all the way through. I'll half to think of a tasty side dish to serve with this!

    This recipe is really wonderful. When I am out of fresh basil, I have subbed fresh parsley and it is still great. I have also used light mayo (not fat free) and multigrain fresh bread to make the crumbs. Thanks Marie.
