Altered ingredient amounts. Some chopped cashew nuts added to the breadcrumbs and parmesan gave a lovely nutty flavour and added a extra bit of crunch to the chciken - try it, absolutely fabulous! - 07 Oct 2008


Altered ingredient amounts. Well done Carol.The BEST chicken breasts ever. I am not a enthusiastic chicken lover and I find it difficult to find a good moist chicken breast recipe with flavour. I used 7 BIG cloves of garlic and upped the oil by 4 tbsp and breadcrumbs, Cheese combo 4tbsps for 6 breasts. Baked for 30 min. Perfect. This is as Exquisite dish and the aroma is Heavenly. IF there are left overs,place on a salad for a nice lunch. - 18 Jul 2008


Top quality recipe and really simple, the result was gorgeous served with rosemary roast potatoes and a green salad. I used a little more garlic than the recipe suggested but is still wasnt overpowering. I also added chopped cashew nuts to the breadcrumb and parmesan crust - this gave a lovely nutty crunch to the chicken. Beautiful. - 07 Oct 2008
