    Added about a Tbsp of Honey Dijon Mustard to the mixture and air fried it instead of baking it. Turned out sooo good! Very moist and flavorful! Putting this on my must-try-again list!

    This is a fantastic recipe, a definite do again! I used chicken breast, along with, bone in thighs and legs. The breast came out sooo moist my wife what’s me to make this a once a month meal! I also,instead of salad, cooked up green beans with baby Bella mushrooms then sprinkle the rest of unused bread crumbs over them, sprinkled ptarmigan cheese just before serving!

    Loved it! So easy and delicious and the chicken was very juicy. I have made it with and without the breadcrumbs (for a gluten-free option) and we enjoyed it both ways.

    most AMAZING chicken I have ever made! I used Ritz crackers instead of the bread crumbs. If you havent tried this, you really must!

    I've made this 2-3 times and it's been delicious every time. It's juicy and delicious. The flavours are amazing, but not too many

    It was very tasty & moist! Quick prep & would totally make again. I also used fresh Parmesan cheese.

    Sage, you may have used the wrong Parmesan, it needs to be fresh shredded Parmesan, not the grated Parmesan by Kraft.

    I found that if I only coated the one side of the chicken it was just right for us. I also pounded my chicken flat. Love this recipe! We eat it once a week per family request.

    This is my "go to" chicken recipe. It's fast, simple, and delicious. The chicken always comes out moist and tender. I also add some finely chopped onion and chives, and admit to having a heavy hand with the cheese.

    This is one of the best recipes for chicken breast that I have ever made. Everyone loved it and had seconds...and some had thirds :) So easy to make!!
