I served this to the boys the other night for our weekly dinners on was so good! I served it with Green Rice Pilaf (the recipe will follow).

Parmesan, pecans, oregano and basil blend beautifully in this crunchy, crusted chicken. The recipe couldn’t be much easier, and no one will know it’s lower in calories. —Patricia Brown, Battle Creek, Michigan
