    So yummy! There wasn't even a crumb left over. I would have given this 5 stars but I added additional spices to the mayo mixtures....thyme, rosemary, oregano, and dried parsley for color. It was so moist, so tender, and so fast! I made mine on top of a wire rack on a cookie sheet, and then flipped them for the last 5 minutes so that it would be crispy all the way around. Delicious! I can't wait to try it with Kraft Dijonaise instead of mayo for a little less fat and more flavor. *edit* I think it's a MUST to cook this on a wire rack and flip at the end....we didn't do this the second time I made it and it was a soggy mess on the bottom.  -  23 May 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    great recipe! I dipped the chicken in Italian dressing instead of mayo., but the chicken stayed so moist and tender, it was great.  -  06 Mar 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    WOOT WOOT ! lol. I did make some minor changes that i think helped make this dish 5 stars. Try using crushed croutons instead of the Italian bread crumbs. It made it that much more crunchier! Use chicken tenderloins, that way the chicken crunches up better. I also cooked it on a pampered chef stone! YUMM, I loved this and will make it several times a month.  -  12 Dec 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
