Questions & Replies

  1. Can you use Alfredo instead of red sauce?


  1. This was awesome as others are stating. I put some sauce on the bottom of baking dish, added chicken and topped with more sauce and a combo of prov and mozz. Used seasoned panko. Simple and delish. Love me some Italian food!
  2. Tried this super easy recipe tonight and turned out fabulous!
  3. This was good and easy to make. I made this for my husband for Father's Day as he loved chicken parmesan. I followed the recipe except that I used pam instead of butter in the pan. I also did this all on the stove as I didn't feel like heating up the oven. I also used sliced mozzarella cheese instead of shredded as that is what I had on hand. We all enjoyed this but my husband thought the coating needed a bit more seasoning. He said it needed some pepper and maybe some garlic powder.
  4. this was really really easy and quick. I didnt have Italian breadcrumbs, only plain - so I seasoned it myself w/italian seasoning and garlic. I live on egg substitute and it worked fine for the eggwash. I just used jar sauce, un-doctored, and it was sufficient. Served atop tri colored pasta with some steamed italian green beans added in the pasta for some green. Also served with an italian salad. I also thought, to make it quicker, I might whip up a batch of the crumb/parm cheese mix and store in an airtight container for quick weeknight use. Thanks for the submission!
  5. This was excellent!!! I used a parmesan and romano blend and also used Bertolli Olive Oil and Garlic sauce. I did not have any mozzarella Cheese for the top but I used extra sharp cheddar and it tasted fabulous... Thanks for this recipe I have made it twice already... ;)
