I won my company's Chicken Cook-Off with this recipe. I cooked the chicken in an oven at 350 for 30 minutes instead of using a microwave. Read More

I was really excited about this recipe but by the time dinner was over I was a little disappointed. Due to allergies I used crushed corn flakes instead of bread crumbs and I couldn't bring myself to microwave this so I threw it in the oven. I don't know if that's what the problem was or not but it seemed really dry to me and a little on the bland side when it came to the spices. It wasn't one of our favorites but all in all it wasn't that bad. Read More

TERRIFIC! We could not believe how GREAT this recipe was! Instead of the microwave I used the oven: 350 for 45 minutes (don't put them too close together or the sides won't cook). I toasted some rice bread (wheat allergy) and put it in the cuisinart to make crumbs - they were the best part! Kind of a chunky coarse crumb topping instead of super fine crumbs (had about 1 cup total). Poured all the left over crumb mixture over chicken before cooking. They held a lot of the butter (used about 1/4 cup vs 1T) and got crunchy-toasty in the oven! SUPER RECIPE! Amazing flavor! Smelled fantastic while cooking! Presentation is company-worthy or nice for an everyday meal! Don't leave out any of the spices - the combination of them all is what makes it! Thank you for a new favorite! We'll be talking about this one for a long time! Read More

I wasn't sure what to expect as its cooked in the microwave. I loved this meal and plan on adding it to my regular rotation. I only made one change: used mozzarella instead of swiss. Its a little messy to roll them all up but its worth it. Read More

I have to give this 5 stars because I was so happy with the butter/bread crumb/microwave idea! I changed the stuffing though used fresh mozzarella roma tomatoes and fresh basil. I cooked for 7 minutes 30 seconds and it was moist and perfect! Thanks for the recipe! Read More

I, too, was skeptical about this dish because it's cooked in the microwave, but it is delicious! It's almost too good to be true because it's so quick and easy. I was looking for a great dinner dish that wouldn't heat up my kitchen during the summer months, and this one fits the bill. I will be making it again and again, all year 'round. Read More

When I found this recipe I was looking for something I could cook in the microwave. I got a new apartemnt and very little time for cooking. The recipe sounded great. I did make a few changes: insted of using swiss chesse I use provolone. The presliced round simlir to the turkey lunchmeat and turkey breast slices that I used. I added this recipe to my recipe and e-mailed to my mother It was great!!!! Read More
