This had absolutely no flavor! I even added extra garlic and some spices but I think the juices from the chicken dilute the potency and flavor of the spices. I will not be making this again. Read More

This is a good recipe. I have made this for years. I do it a bit differently. For step one use the same seasonings with a little flour to coat the chicken and saute the breasts till golden. I remove the chicken to a plate. In the skillet saute the mushrooms till tender. Then add 1C chicken broth 1/3 C Marsalla wine. Simmer scraping up any bits in the pan. Return the chicken and simmer till heated through. I top it with the cheese put a lid on to melt it then serve with linguini or a rice pilaf. Ladle the sauce with mushrooms over the cheese topped chicken It is a great variation. The recipe as is is very flavorful and with the light flavor of the wine sauce can really add to it. KimasWeiss I prefer this in the oven too. Follow the 1st step browning the seasoned & floured chicken. when done put it in a baking dish. In the skillet saute mushrooms onion if you like then add the broth/wine and let it simmer till reduced about 1/4. Pour over the chicken and top with cheese. 25 mins @ 350 and your set. Read More

I added one onion (cook this before adding mushrooms) with the mushrooms. I also added a clove of garlic to this and salt and peppered it. Turns out better with a combination of EVOO and butter/margarine. After the mushrooms and onions are somewhat cooked I added the chicken. Make sure you don't overcook the chicken! I seasoned the chicken with salt and pepper as well. Eyeball the cheese and sprinkle the cheese directly into the pan so it melts. Serve from the pan. I eat it with steamed white rice. Yum! Read More

I thought this was very tasty and easy. I took the advice of another reviewer and added fresh basil and parsley. I think that really made a difference. Read More

This was a huge hit. I made quite q few changes though. 1) I put 1/4 cup flour in a zip lock bag along with oregeno parsely basil onion powder garlic powder garlic salt and black pepper. 2) I shook each piece of chicken in the bag to fully coat. 3) while the chicken was cooking for the first 12 minutes I sautéd the mushrooms along with chopped onion and garlic. I will be cooking this again. Read More

Flattened the chicken breasts thin and then sauteed them in an olive oil/butter combination. Added more sliced mushrooms. Two cups of mozzarella cheese for two chicken breasts is ridiculous! Just eyeballed the amount that I thought would be appropriate. Read More

For a general meal it's 4 stars- enjoyable but not the end all be all. But for a quick easy meal- 5 stars. I added basil & oregano to the chicken seasonings. I used a 1.5 TB which was plenty. Definitely don't cook the chicken that long unless you have massively thick chicken. I did 3 mins/side and kept checking it. Read More
