This is a fantastic dish! My husband ate his over rice and I had mine over whole grain pasta. Served with a green bean and carrot mixture (French blend of Haricot Vert Green Beans Wax Beans and Baby Carrots) it was a complete meal. I DEFINATELY agree with the other reviewers in that there is not enough sauce. I would use more like the following: 5 cups chicken broth 6oz. can tomato paste 1 2/3 teaspoon ground black pepper 3 1/3 teaspoon dried oregano 1 teaspoon salt 6-7 cloves garlic minced 4-6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves 3/4 cup dry bread crumbs 2-4 teaspoons olive oil 16oz. fresh mushrooms (sliced) Read More

Pretty good I'll make again but I suggest increasing the portion in the sauce there was barely enough once I was done. Read More

I was confused by whether the ingredient is tomato paste or tomato sauce - if you read closely you'll see both are mentioned. I decided to use paste and it seemed to work. I pounded the breasts thin to ensure even cooking and I used Italian herb-flavored chicken broth as well as Italian seasoned bread crumbs. The sauce was just enough for two breasts so I agree with the other reviewers that you would need to increase all of the sauce ingredients if you were serving this for more than two. With all of that nitpickiness out of the way I must say that this recipe is very good. The breasts were moist the flavor was satisfying. It is going into my regular repertoire. Read More

This was VERY tasty. My husband LOVED it as well. I do agree with the other reviewer that it was not enough and also put this on top of rice. I would also recommend doubling the sauce recipe if you are going to add rice...this way there is extra sauce for the rice. Read More

At home alone one night and did not want to make a big fuss over dinner. This was great. It was super quick! Next time I will omit the bread crumbs due to they really did nothing for the dish. When you simmer with sauce and cover they get soggy. The chicken however was excellent very tender. The sauce was one of the best I have had with chicken. Served with white rice and steamed summer squash. Leftovers were even better! Thanx again! Read More

While I was making this all of a sudden I had a memory of my mother making this same dish when I was little. So this gets 5 stars for not only tasting great but bringing back memories! I used bone in chicken breasts and used zucchini instead of mushrooms for my husbands tastes. I also didn't remove the chicken to let the sauce thicken I just let it all cook together for about 40 minutes covered on medium low and served the sauce over the chicken and rice. A delicious and easy meal! Thanks! Read More

Well the next day I had half a can of tomato paste left so I made this again with some variation. I just used water instead of the chicken broth (the broth made it too salty) I added onion instead of mushrooms and I also added a couple tablespoons of cream cheese to the sauce mixture (heat it up to melt the cheese in the microwave). The cream cheese gave it a really creamy texture and flavor and my boyfriend loved it! And I usually suck at cooking! Read More

Delicious! Quick and easy too. I more than doubled the sauce as well as the garlic. Having an abundance of potatoes from our summer garden I served with mashed potatoes (with lots of sauce) and sauteed spinach (with lots of garlic). Yum - the family loved it! Read More
