I made this up one night with ingredients I had on hand, and now it is a weekly request in our house! Everyone always asks for the recipe, and it is so simple. Serve it over a bed of mixed greens for a fancy presentation, or over pasta for a more traditional Italian feel!

  • 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.

  • 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).

  • 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.

  • Transfer baked chicken to a plate; top with bell pepper and tomato mixture. Garnish with shaved Romano cheese.

I followed the recipe exactly but I just didn't like this dish. To me it tasted like a bunch of different flavors that didn't really go with each other all thrown together. The cayenne pepper was too strong and overwhelmed the dish. Read More

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. Read More

This is one of my family’s favorite recipes. I serve it over a bed of angel hair pasta. Along with the sun dried tomatoes and peppers I also sauté in the same skillet some smoked beef sausage and sliced onion. Read More

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 Read More
