This was very fast and very filling. I pounded the chicken thinner and it allowed the meat to absorb more of the flavors. Also I used Roma tomatoes and fresh basil. Delicious!

I liked this but didn't really care all that much for the mayonnaise. I would have liked it better without. It did make the chicken moist however, and I loved the breading flavor. I will make it again with a few changes to fit my taste. Thank you for sharing it with us Bea! Linda

Lovely flavour.nice moist chicken. I had to use dried basil and i used pumpernickel bread slices for the bread crumbs, made for nice crunching topping, with no fat mayo, turned out looking pretty with the tomato base. We enjoyed it and will be making it again, thanks for posting.
