This recipe is so easy and tasty! I think it's a lot better then Chicken Parmesan from a resturant. I have made it multipe different times, and each time it comes out well and gets lots of compliments.

This recipe is really easy to make and turned out GREAT!!!

The instructions worked just perfectly, and soon we had delicious, perfctly-seasoned Chicken Parmesan sitting on our plates! We both agreed that this recipe deserves a "10" and that we WILL be having it again!!

The one thing I did differently, was leave the chicken breast whole instead of cutting into strips like the recipe says. I actually just forgot to cut it, but it still was delicious! 

I made my own breadcrumbs for this.

First, I toasted 3 slices of whole-grain bread, I tore the toast into small pieces and put them on a cookie sheet. I preheated the oven to 350 degrees and put the sheet of toast in to bake.

As soon as I put the toast in, I turned down the oven to 300 degrees. I baked the crumbs for about 25 minutes, until they were dry but NOT burned, of course!! ;)

I took out the sheet, let them cool, and crumbled them with a potato masher. It made very fine crumbs and worked just great. :)
