Here's a way to dress up chicken breasts for a family dinner or party, using fresh mushrooms, green onions and two kinds of cheese. It's a recipe I can count on to yield tender and flavorful chicken every time. —Barbara McCalley, Allison Park, Pennsylvania

"Loved it. I will definitely try some of the suggestions in the below comments for doubling the sauce and adding a little garlic or lemon juice."

"This one's a keeper! I doubled everything, well ok, I probably tripled the cheese, didn't flatten the chicken, just baked it an extra 6 minutes. Lots of flavour, tender and juicy."

"This is very good. The fresh mushrooms really ad to the flavor.

My family loves chicken and this is great because it is baked."

"Great flavour, you need to double or triple the sauce. I've made it twice once with chicken breasts and then with boneless skinless chicken thighs. I added granulated garlic to the flour and doubled the amount of mushrooms. Everyone loved it."

"Really enjoyed this dish! I didn't pound the breasts, just cooked them as is, but the sauce definitely needs to be increased, there was not enough. Next time I'll at least double it. But the flavor of this dish was so good, yum!"

"This is very easy to make and very tasty. I added a bit of garlic powder and fresh chives instead of green onions because I did not have the onions on hand. This would be nice for a dinner party. Think I will try it on some friends."

"This was super easy and really delicious. I didn't have fresh mushrooms so I used two small cans. I wasn't sure about that because we love fresh mushrooms, but when they were sauteed in butter and added to the recipe, they were great. My husband asked me to add more cheese and more green onion the next time. When we heated it for leftovers I would add a handful of shredded cheese on the chicken. I'll also try chicken tenderloins, as I almost always have them on hand. Just have to watch the cooking time. Fabulous! Good enough for a company dinner."
