    Mum's recipe for success includes pouring white wine over the partially cooked chicken. I've used sherry in a pinch!

    Good and easy. I used boneless chicken breasts so only cooked 30ish minutes before adding the wine...and didnt use the parsley in the cooking but kept it till serving.  -  15 Apr 2010


    I've told several people about this recipe and they all love it. My mom always asks "do you have any more great recipes like THAT ONE". I did change it a bit. I'm doing the DIET thing so I use boneless skinless chicken breasts. Also it doesn't need the butter or the wine. I put all the dry ingredients into a ziplock bag and with one clean hand sprinkle this mixture on the chicken, flipping it and padding it in with your BAD (chicken) hand. I then put the ziplock bag into the fridge for next weeks dinner, I can actually get several meals out of one recipe. Bake at 350 for 45min or until done. Also use the powdered like parmesan cheese that you find in the isle not in the fridge. It sticks to the chicken better then the grated parmesan that is truly grated into little strips.  -  01 Aug 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Used skinless, boneless breasts, soaked in Ranch dressing for about an hour first. Didn't have seasoned breadcrumbs, so made crumbs from Ranch flavored almond/rice crackers. And, hubby doesn't like wine in the chicken so left that out. What a surprise! Everyone loved it. Nice and juicy, wonderful flavors. Will make this again for sure. Thanks Christy!  -  30 Apr 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
