  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Combine 3/4 cup Romano cheese, bread crumbs, granulated garlic, cayenne pepper, and thyme in a shallow bowl. Press each chicken cutlet into the cheese mixture, turning to coat. Arrange chicken in a baking dish.
  3. Bake chicken in the preheated oven until slightly golden, about 25 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
  4. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add bell pepper, sun-dried tomatoes, and minced garlic to the skillet. Season with salt and pepper. Cook and stir until bell pepper and tomatoes soften, about 10 minutes.
  5. Transfer baked chicken to a plate; top with bell pepper and tomato mixture. Garnish with shaved Romano cheese.

I scaled this to a serving size for two - One for dinner, and one for lunch The next day. Problem… This was so delicious I almost wanted to eat the second serving! Thank you so much for shar...

Made exactly as written, cayenne pepper overwhelmed the dish. If I try again, I will use about 1/4 of the pepper. BUT loved the Romano cheese

Made it as described and it was delicious

I too followed the recipe exactly and was very disappointed. Cayenne pepper was too strong! Didn't like it enough to try again with reduced pepper - not a keeper.
