  • In large resealable food-storage plastic bag, mix bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Shake each chicken breast in bread crumb mixture; set aside.

  • In 10-inch skillet, heat 2 tablespoons vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken breasts; cook 6 to 10 minutes, turning once, until browned. Pour cooking sauce around chicken; sprinkle chicken with remaining bread crumb mixture and mozzarella cheese. Heat to boiling. Cover; reduce heat to medium. Cook 5 to 8 minutes or until juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (at least 165°F) and cheese is melted. Serve with spaghetti.

Tips

In place of shredded mozzarella, you can use four 1-oz slices.

Panko bread crumbs are crisper than dried bread crumbs and can be found in the same section of your grocery store. Give them a try!

We LOVED this. I also breaded the chicken using the milk flour egg and bread crumb combo thanks to the suggestion in a previous review (Colorado Trio); I used chicken breasts but sliced them into three pieces or so before I breaded. We ate this meal without the spaghetti because we stay away from too many carbs. I had plenty of chicken we had a salad on the side and it was yummy! I didn't add anything extra to the sauce. This is going to be a regular during the school year! Easy and delicious. Read More

First of all I subbed chicken tenderloins for the whole chicken breast so that it cooked quicker without drying. I used my method of breading by mincing about 8 cloves of garlic and tossing the chicken tenders in a zip lock with 1/4 cup olive oil & the garlic. Let it sit in the frig while I prepped my panko/cheese mixture. Tossed the marinated chicken tenders as directed and prepared as directed. This was very tasty with all the additions though I do wish the sauce was just a bit thicker. I might make this again but I will reduce the recipe starter sauce a bit before I add it to the chicken.

This was a HUGE hit in my house! I loved the simplicity of the recipe and yet the flavor was delicious. I did prepare it by cooking the chicken fully in the pan and then placing the chicken with the sauce poured over the top in the oven for about 10 minutes. I believe this is what allowed the sauce to thicken up. I served it along side pasta and breadsticks. A definite keeper in my house! Read More

Oh wow this was delicious. I did make a few changes to this. First I used thin chicken breasts then dipped them in an egg/milk mixture before covering them with bread crumbs. Used a 9 X 13 pan that fit 6 thin breasts in. Poured 1/4 cup melted butter over chicken then added sauce (added 2 teaspoons of minced garlic to sauce) and cheese. Baked at 350 for 25 minutes. The chicken and sauce had the best flavor! Family devoured it! Read More

I don't usually like sauces out of a can soup out of a can anything processed really! I was pleasantly surprised by the taste. This was SO easy and made dinner really fast and my family happy. Also not much clean up which is a plus! I think I would make this again for an easy meal. Didn't change anything other than adding more cheese on top! Read More

VERY GOOD! This meal really came together fast and was very enjoyable. I served it over fettuccine. I'm giving it four stars because I needed to cook at a lower temperature and the sauce needs tomato paste crushed tomatoes or something else to thicken it. It was too thin. I was worried that it would be too spicy for us "older folks" but it was not. I would make this again but with the sauce thickened. Thank you Progresso Recipe Starters for another fast delicious meal. Read More

This was such a great meal...Loved how tender the chicken turned out and it was even white meat! I changed up the breading method a little...first I dipped into milk then flour then egg then the panko (learned this from tonkatsu)...turned out beautiful. Also I used breast tenderloins instead of full breasts. Didn't have to alter the sauce at all...yum! Read More

We thought this was "OK". Based on other reviews I made adjustments. I marinated the chicken for about 30min in Italian dressing & garlic before dredging in the panko. I also opted to bake the chicken (I'd used tenders) in a 350degree oven for about 25 min. I knew immediately what others meant about the sauce being too thin so I made a roux of 2t oil & 2t flour browned that & then added the Progresso Recipe Starter. Brought that to a boil & simmered a few minutes while the chicken finished up. I did have to add additional seasoning to the sauce as well to fit our tastes. Poured some of the liquid in with chicken (as per recipe) and topped with mozz & remaining crumb mix & popped back in the oven for about 5 more minutes. Like I said it was OK but I will probably stick with my regular method for chicken parmesan. Read More
