Baked Chicken and Mushrooms Recipe

Baked Chicken and Mushrooms Recipe

I made up this dish years ago, and it still remains a family favorite. It's a fast and healthy weeknight meal, but the fresh mushrooms and sherry make it special enough for a weekend dinner party. -Lise Prestine of South Bend, Indiana
