    this was a really nice dish all my family liked this  -  07 Mar 2013


    this recipe was absolutely delicous. Cooking for the second time in a week because the family wanted it again.  -  19 Mar 2013


    I watched the video and made this recipe before reading the reviews. I wouldn't have tried it after reading all the negative comments, but I'm so glad I did. I made this for company and we all loved it! I did have to bake longer than 35 mins (probably closer to 50) and the croutons got very crunchy on top but it was fantastic. My husband took leftovers to work and many colleagues asked for the recipe because it smelled so good! I've very rarely make Chicken Parmesan because of the time it takes to prepare, but this will be one of my regulars.  -  13 Dec 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
