    How long do you cook the chicken all together?

  • AJ

    I just made this last night! I had pretty fat pieces of chicken, but they were completely thawed when I put them in. They cooked about 35 min. before I put the sauce and cheese over them, then another 7 or 8 min. after that. It totally depends on your chicken thickness and how fast your oven cooks.

    similar recipe— place chicken breasts in crockpot….smother with sauce, sprinkle with crumbs, top with cheese. cook low 6 hours. serve on pasta.

  • Katherine

    Raw egg is on your list of things not to freeze. Should you be freezing this one?

  • Mary Hudnall

    Seems like 6 eggs is way more than needed for 4 chicken breasts. Does it really take that many?
