Chicken Parmigiano

"Got this recipe out of a magazine my mother-in-law had. It's very good, and I really like that it serves 2. Some nights you just need a "one shot" meal without leftovers, and this is a tasty change."

    I would rate this 3 1/2 or 4 stars, but I made some changes that I think detracted from the outcome, so I'm not rating the recipe now, just commenting. I used canned italien stewed tomatoes that I chopped in the food processor -- not quite as thick as crushed tomatoes and I wasn't happy with the result (but that's all I had on hand). I also used sliced mozzarella rather than shredded and dried basil -- which I think was a mistake. Fresh basil would have been much more flavorful, and I think it's a must for this recipe. I also would have pounded the chicken breasts there is more surface area for the topping. All in all, the method is good and I think this will be a 5-star recipe when I make it again.

    I used a homemade red sauce instead of the canned tomatoes but other than that I stuck to the recipe as written. It was fantastic! My daughter informed me that this was the best chicken I have ever made :)

    This is a really tasty and easy meal to put together. I've made it a few times now, with fresh or dried basil and it's definitely better with fresh. Big surprise. Love this recipe and thanks for posting it.

    This was an outstanding recipe and we loved it. It is so easy, and I will make this again for sure! I used double the quantity of chicken breast but did not change the quantities of all other ingredients and it turned out very well.
