    Not sure how I've missed this so many times, but it's just as well. That means you can still surprise me, HokiesMom! This was super easy and I loved how quickly it came together. I did leave mine a few minutes too long, but they weren't overdone, just really brown! The taste was great, as well...Thanks HokiesMom, for sharing a winner of a chicken recipe - this will go into my 'tried and true' book!
    Great chicken! This is the kind of recipe I make to get my DSs to eat more meat! Made as written using thin-cut b/s chicken so I didn't have to pound them flatter. Cooked in a cast iron skillet so gave it a nice crunchy crust. Made for Best of 2012 Tag.

    What an amazing dish...SIL and DD are very picky when it comes to their chicken eating habits...both of them loved this dish...DD had three pieces...with that said I did use chicken tenderloins...about 10 of them...it was the perfect amount...I did have extra bread crumb coating...but that was fine...these were easy to toss together and fry up...I did cook them in about half the amount required...this is a keeper...I just served them with some corn on the cob and sweet potato fries...what a yummy dinner...thanks for posting it...:)

    Very easy to make and tasty to boot. I used chicken tenders and garlic powder instead of minced garlic. Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup.

    Tastes great! And so quick after a day at work....this will definitely be made again. I did need to reduce the temp a bit because my stove cooks a bit hotter than most, but otherwise made as posted and enjoyed this immensely! Thanks for sharing! Made for Best of 2012 game.

    Very nice easy mid week meal. My 1/2 chicken breasts weighed about 200 grams each and I halved them horizontally and then crumbed them instead of pounding them out. I did have to substitute basil for the parsley and just used oil to cook. I also needed 2 eggs to complete the crumbing. I was surprised that the herb/spice flavour did not come out more, it was very subtle when eating though when cooking the smell really came out and was devine. Thank you HokiesLady, made for ZAAR STARS.
