Reviews for Baked Chicken and Mushrooms
"I love the ease of prep, the low carb aspect, but it needed some seasoning. Not sure what to add, but just read the thoughts about bacon etc. This is definitely one I'll make again, but need to think about how I can jazz it up. Thank you so much, Lise, for sharing your creativity."
"Recipe was great after I followed the advise of Chris1414 and added bacon. I fried 3 peices of bacon and kept the drippings in the pan. Put the bacaon aside. Followed recipe for the sauce but used Marsala wine and Chicken broth...I used almost a cup of broth. I added the crumbled bacon back in the sauce. Using extra sauce allows you to cook the ingredients and sauce before pouring over the chicken. The chicken was perfectly cooked. We served this with fresh angel hair pasta. A definite do over. I would probably add some salt, peper and garlic powder to the chicken during the first cook and before putting on the sauce. Also topped with fresh Parmasan and Mozzarella. Yummy...Oh, I also puounded out my chicken breasts to about 1/3 inch thick. Very good...make it your own!"
"This recipe tastes average. Although it is a creative recipe that is very easy to make, it needs more flavor. Bacon? Additional spices? It needs something added to it."
"Simple and delicious!"
"Fantastic! This dish was so tasty that we went back for seconds! I will definitely make again very soon!"
