  1. We had this for dinner tonight and we loved it! It was delicious and the chicken was sooo moist. We used 4 small chicken breasts, flattened them and browned on each side for about a minute or two. Since the chicken wasn't thick we baked for only 25 minutes total. Also, for the spaghetti we used only 1/2 a box and it worked perfectly to serve 4 people. Thanks for the wonderful recipe Little Bee!
  2. Really good basic recipe...quick & easy.
  3. I am not sure what happened with the other reviewers, but this chicken turned out EXCELLENT for me!! So incredibly easy and delicious. This is perfect for the days when you just don't have time to make a fancy meal, but you want it to taste like it took time. Thanks Little Bee!
  4. I made your Easy Chicken Parmigiana according to the recipe and my family loved it! It was quick and easy to prepare. I will definitely be making this recipe again!
  5. This did have a good flavor, but I preffer my breadcrumbs to be cripy with the spaghetti sauce spooned on when served. Rachel C.
