    I really like this recipe but dh thinks the sauce is a little too bland on the pasta, I use a canned sauce that we like. All together a favorite of ours and very easy to make. The chicken has great flavor! Thanks for this recipe.

    I have made this recipe at least 5 times. The simplicity of the ingredients is the real key here; Although I am often tempted(!)to sprinkle in a little of this or that, I do not add anything extra to the sauce. The only thing I do differently is sprinkle the chicken with the parmesan before dipping it into the egg. Since I never use all the egg, I felt I was wasting too much cheese. Fresh taste, this one is a keeper.

    We LOVED this recipe! The simplicity of it makes it wonderful for a weeknight dinner, but the simmering sauce is so good that it also makes a wonderful weekend meal. It smells so good. Use good quality chicken, or the meat may be too tough.
