This entree is easy and delicious, and made healthier by using Jarlsberg cheese (instead of Swiss) and whole wheat bread crumbs.

This recipe was excellent, almost authentic northern bavarian,(German) thicker layer of bread crumbs on top yielded very moist and juicy chicken breasts underneath. No Leftovers
