I made this recipe for the Mormon missionaries last night. They loved them! As did my husband. So great trying new successful recipes,

Let me tell you firstly that I'm Asian and this kind of fare is always new for me. Secondly, I can't really cook. I pretty much suck at it, often even when I have a recipe to follow (well, mostly because I don't usually have all the ingredients and then I start to improvise and then it all goes down hill from there). But this recipe was a revelation! I got all the ingredients together, fumbled a bit with the oven timing while preparing everything else, but the end result was perfection. The sauce was good enough to eat by itself (I did with plain white rice; it was a bit strange but delicious). The bread crumbs were perfectly golden and crunchy. Flavorful and scrumptious! I took pictures! I will definitely make this again.

I made the cheesy chicken breast and it was very good; quick, flavorful, easy to make and my family also loved it. !!

I gave this a 4 star because it is very easy to prepare and infused with nice flavors. I do agree with another reviewer to put together early.

This one is just wonderful! The flavor was so good. My family dislike anything new but this one was a hit. I recommend this one.

Prepare early for the best flavour. I served with garlic & hot chili infused fettucini. Very good. I would definetly make again and serve to company.
