    Used different ingredients. This recipe requires some help in the flavour department. Romano can easily be substituted for the Parmesan Cheese. Bread crumbs on their own are pretty tasteless, hence the previous comments by others who rated this dish, so the addition of any of your favourite herbs/spices such as oregano, thyme, paprika, garlic etc to the bread crumbs will definately help out. Also, as others mentioned, melted butter can also lend moistness to chicken breast meat which by nature is sometimes dry. This recipe is basically good, so you should't be afraid to play around with it!!  -  29 Sep 2008

    Used different ingredients. I agree that its a good base recipe, but it needs some kind of flavour. I added Australian lemon myrtle to the breadcrumb mixture.  -  07 Oct 2010
