Wonderful recipe! I have made a couple of times before writing a review. The recipe is wonderful as written, but after experimenting, I would suggest the following to change it up from time to time: 1)Increase the cheese to 3/4 cup using a mixture of Romano and Parmesan. 2) Used 1 tsp of a good quality paprika (makes all the difference in the flavor of the finished dish) and 1 tsp smoky paprika. 3) Added 1/2 tsp of garlic powder. 4) Decrease butter to 1/8 cup based on the increase in cheese. 5) Bake for 45 minutes tops otherwise the chicken dries out. Enjoy!
