      I needed a quick, delicious recipe for supper. In spite of having to cook a chicken breast, it still went together fairly quickly. I didn't have quite all the ingredients so I didn't make it exactly as written. It was AMAZING! The sauce is very rich, creamy, just the right touch of garlic (I used one clove pressed through a garlic press). I just used canned mushrooms, omitted the nutmeg and sherry and used mozzarella instead of parm (Hubby doesn't like parm and I didn't have any). I would definitely make this again, and will try it as written, although the nutmeg I'm not so certain I'd like in a dish like this. Thanks for a delicious recipe! Even my picky 11 yr old said it was good and THAT is something when she says it's good!

      Absolutely delicious! As a beginner cook I felt this recipe was a fun challenge and it came out beautifully. My boyfriend (who began the meal saying he wasn't very hungry) went back for seconds! Must try!!

      This was simply wonderful! I keep dried mushrooms on hand just in case I run out of fresh and as it happens I needed them. After bringing the mushrooms back, I used a tea towel for wringing out the excess water before chopping and sauteing them along with the garlic and onions. I also combined the chicken, some leftover gravy and peas with the finished onion mixture so layering was easier. Very tasty. It's a winner.
