Chicken Maryland? Chicken Maryland is the thigh and leg not breast of chicken! Maybe you should have called it crumbed chicken breast. - 04 Mar 2015


don't worry about the debate on what this dish should be called, this is a nice, easy and tasty recipe. just a couple of comments .... i suggest you change the instruction in the sauce preparation to state "3/4 of a tablespoon of flour" and not "3-4 tablespoons" .... could lead to a very binding sauce!! also in the sauce section, you state "add seasoning" when adding the cream. i presumed that to mean salt and pepper. i found the sauce "missing something" in its taste ...... did i miss something in my interpretation of "seasoning"? i also suggest 30 minutes for baking chicken .... just to be sure of thoroughness of bake!! - 02 Dec 2015


Above reviewer is correct, Chicken Maryland by definition uses chicken thighs, NOT breasts. It would be more appropriate to name this 'Crumbed chicken breasts'. - 22 Mar 2014
