  1. I made this tonight and it was really good! I made my own spaghetti sauce and served it over whole wheat pasta (I'm so glad it tastes GOOD now...remember when you first saw it in stores and it was disgusting?). My chicken breasts were really thick, and I wish I would have pounded them out first because the chicken was a little plain, and I think it was because the chicken:crouton ratio was too high. I also microwaved each portion for about a minute after adding the cheese just to melt the cheese.
  2. I made this last night for a dinner celebrating my mom's retirement. Everyone loved it!I halved my chicken breasts and poured the leftover crouton crumbs over the chicken. Also, after the chicken cooked for 20 mins I turned off the oven, poured the sauce around the chicken, covered in cheese, and popped back in the oven until the cheese was melted.
    My boyfriend who always finds ways to improve a dish admitted he had NO constructive criticism. This recipe's definitely a keeper
