    I have been experimenting with different recipes for chicken breasts and this one comes out tops so far. Easy to make and full of flavour. I cut down on the cheese to make it a bit healthier and it was still very tasty. Will definitely be making it again.  -  02 Feb 2016


    Easy and super tasty  -  06 Oct 2015


    Soooo good! I used a combo of shredded cheddar, bread crumbs, and corn flakes (actually threw in the crumbs from a Cheese-Nip box as well) to create the breading. Also added extra cheese on top. So delicious! It's a constant request in the house. Edit: I've made this so many times and had so much fun playing around with it that I want to share - 1 cup of crackers (Ritz, cornflakes, saltines, cheese-nips, anything!), 1/2c parm chz, 1 1/2c cheddar, 1/2c bread crumbs. I also dip the chicken in flour before the butter to help it stick. This is a great recipe to be adventurous with - do not hesitate to play around!!! Update 2: I've discovered Panko bread crumbs to replace the standard crumbs. WOW! MUCH crispier and gives it that texture that I've noticed a lot of reviews say is missing. No panko... try coursely crushing some croutons.  -  06 Sep 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
