I made this dish recently after a long summer of not turning on the oven.  My husband declared it to be one of his favorite meals.  I have to admit, it's one of my favorites, too.  I usually serve it over pasta or rice with a salad on the side.

I don't use any measurements. I generally chop up about 3-4 chicken breasts and use enough bread crumbs to coat them.  I make my own bread crumbs by shredding up a slice or two of bread in the food processor, but store bought works just fine.  I also make my own Italian salad dressing, but, again, store bought works!
