  • “This is so simple & tasty.Truthfully, & I don’t know why, but this is the 1st time I have ever made Chicken Parm.I did add some sliced mushrooms & onions (sauteed) & then shoveled it all in the oven @350 x25 min & then turned the heat up to 385 x15 min when I added the fresh mozz.It was sooo good & the chicken was soo tender.Served w/spaghetti, fresh green beans & garlic bread sticks.Thank you for sharing.”

  • “I have used this recipe with a few changes for a freezer meal. It works out great! My whole family enjoys it along with all the people I’ve shared it with!”

  • “Simple and tasty!”

  • “I really like the chicken breasts prepared this way and followed the instructions to the letter with the exception of the marinara sauce.Instead, I made the low-fat alfredo sauce # 292890.I also put it under the broiler for a few moments, this was delicious and thaks Marg for the recipe.”

  • “As a quick recipe for chicken parmesan, I think it was pretty good.It was easy and tasty.The most critical ingredient is the tomato sauce.I used Barilla Marinara which is what I had on hand which had chunks of tomatoes in the sauce.I preferred putting it under the broiler for a few moments to brown the cheese slightly and make it bubbly.I would probably make it againI have added a photo of my dish.”

  • “Cooked this last Tuesday and husband said it was in his Top 5!!! Thanks for the awesome recipe!”

  • “i’m making this again for dinner tonight – also passed this recipe on to my daughter.We love it!!Easy and delicious!!!Thanks for the recipe!!”

  • “Quick, easy, can use left over maranara. … love it!”

  • “My family loved this recipe.My son and husband thought it was as delicious as any Chicken Parmesan that they have had at an Italian restaurant. I loved it too, because it was so easy to make and serve.It is a definite keeper.I did oven fry my chicken breasts coated with a little low-fat mayo and then dipped in the Italian bread crumbs.I think it probably cut down on the fat content quite a bit.That is important for us senior citizens.Thank you for this lovely recipe.”

  • “My kids (ages 2 and 4) and DH love it! Congratulations, you’ve achieved the impossible!!!”

  • “Fantastic! My only complaint is that 4 flattened chicken breasts can’t fit in a normal sized skillet (or is it just that chicken breasts aren’t “normal” sized anymore?) I had a 3lb pack of chicken with 5 breasts in it. I just cooked 3 as written and did 2 more after dinner.”

  • “We loved it!!! Fast ,easy and delicious. I used chicken cutlets..already thin-cut-for you..the egg dip and bread crumb coating keeps the cutlets crisp..I added more Italian seasoning to the crumbs and used Paul Newman Marinaraand Ragu Old World Traditional sauce as I like the combination when I don’t make my own sauce.I do use fresh grated ParmigianoReggiano cheese and had to have some mozarella which i sprinkled over the chicken beasts while they cooked in the sauce…Will definitely be making again…”

  • “I recently made it for the first time and everybody loved it!It will be made again!Very easy to make!I had to use a little more butter then described.I also added the parmesan cheese while cooking the chicken.”

  • “I thought the recipe was a little bland; but significant other loved it. 5 stars for easiness. Will definitely make again with a few more spices.”

  • “This was okay, bonus for being super simple though!”

  • “This was so yummy with sauteed garlic and oil linguine and a side salad.The best part is it’s quick to the table when everyone is hungry and you need something quick.This sure fit the bill!”

  • “Oh my! This was so good I think it’s now a favorite with the family . Pretty easy too. Thanks for a great recipe!”
