    This recipe was an instant family hit and is now a favourite. In the last 20 minutes I top it with diced tomatoes, fresh basil and feta cheese. The only other thing I would strongly recomend is to brown the chicken beforehand so that it doesn't look so pale on the plate.  -  06 May 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Very very easy and good! I drizzled a little bit of balsamic vinegar on top before baking then added some mozzarella during the last 15 minutes of baking. Turned out very juicy.  -  30 May 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    We loved this flavorful and healthy dish. I used fresh basil, but got lazy and used dried minced garlic. It was very moist and tender. Unlike others, we had no desire to add the extra calories and fat of a cheese topping. Next time, I might sprinkle a little extra salt, basil, and parsley on top of the tomato slices. This is definitely going to be a regular at our house!  -  28 Feb 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
