  • The real deal! It's a winner

    This will always be chicken parmesan to me. It's identical to the version I enjoyed growing up which makes me realize it must have come from a Campbell's recipe way back when. I was so used to it, the first time I ordered chicken parmesan in a restaurant, I was taken aback by that pounded, flattened, breaded cutlet that they used and thought they had made a mistake. I made this today for my family for the fist time, and my picky six-year-old who is reluctant to try new foods cleaned his plate, as did my wife and our oldest who orders chicken parmesan anytime she goes to an Italian restaurant. Our middle daughter filled up first on spaghetti and didn't finish the chicken, but she said it was good. She called it "pizza chicken." This will become a regular on our table. Comfort food at it's finest- easy, quick, filling, and oh so delicious!

  • Very good flavor

    I just got married and im pretty new to cooking any type of food, and now that i have to cook two or more times a day it becaomes very difficult to figure out new dishes, but i love recipes like this one. It was easy to prepare and the presentation didnt come out the way it looks on the picture but the flavor was awesome, my husband loved it.

    I prefer thinner pieces so I cut breasts in half. This is easy if you use partially frozen pieces. Two breasts frozen side by side can easily be sliced as one. Just hold between tongs and slice down the middle.

  • Quick & easy dinner!

    Very easy meal to put together on a weeknight, good flavor. Served with dinner rolls and a salad. I used 4 chicken breast and prepared in a 9x13 dish.

    Chicken came out very moist and tender. I seasoned the chicken with a salt free herb & garlic spice blend before adding the sauce. I added some chopped garlic and italian seasoning to the sauce to kick up the flavor a bit, sprinkled with light shredded cheese and served over whole wheat spaghettini. My husband and daughter both cleaned their plates. Great quick and easy weeknight meal that tastes like it took much longer to make. Delish!
