This recipe looks like a no salt version unless they are assuming the salt is in the breadcrumbs. Anyway, I added 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp black pepper. I also serve this over spaghetti so I don't want to drown the chicken in sauce, just a 1/4 cup over the breasts in the last 5 min of cooking, covered with the cheeses. PS- I disagree with the 1/4 inch thick breasts. 1/2 inch is about right. If you have thick pieces slice them down the middle and then pound down to 1/2" thick. (If you fry for 2 minutes per side- cook in oven at 375 for about 12 min.) Serve over spaghetti with sauce and parmesan on it. Crispy and delicious!
