“My brother told me this was the best chicken he had ever tasted,” writes Kara Cook from Elk Ridge, Utah, “and it’s one of my very favorites, too. “Not only is it easy to prepare, but it also looks elegant, tastes spectacular, and never fails to bring raves when I serve it to guests.” TIP: Try using any leftover mozzarella cheese to dress up salads, sprinkle on cups of hot chili or make mini pizzas.

"Has anyone tried this with cheddar cheese? That's what I have on hand, wondered if it might give it a good flavor. Sounds like a great recipe, can't wait to try this!"

"It was delicious though I did things a bit different. I used fresh onion and sautéed that with the mushrooms in the bacon grease and after pouring the sauce over the chicken I topped it with the mushrooms and onions. It turned out amazing and my husband loved it!"

"This chicken was incredible! My husband and I both loved it, and it really wasn't that hard to make. I used fresh shredded parmesan instead of mozzarella and I think I prefer it that way. The parm really complemented the existing flavours and textures."

"I changed a couple things but loved the recipe. I added a 1/2 of yellow onion and drizzled all the sauce on the chicken to cook. It was wonderful, my husband said it was the best chicken recipe he has ever had. I will definitely be making it again"
