Reviews for Baked Mushroom Chicken
"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."
"easy peasy and delicious! Used boneless skinless thighs."
"This is very good. The fresh mushrooms really ad to the flavor.My family loves chicken and this is great because it is baked."
"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!"
"Very good! I added two tablespoons of lemon juice to the sauce."
"Made this for dinner very good. Took to work the next day for lunch. still just as good as the first night."
"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."
"easy recipe to follow and memorize. Thank you for the awesome recipe. This is now one of my favorites!"
"Followed recipe exactly & is delicious."
"I looked at the recipe and thought it would be good. It looked so easy. It was VERY easy and VERY good. I would serve this at a wedding or wedding like event. It was great as leftovers as well. I added onion, parsley, garlic powder, salt and pepper to the chicken in the frying pan. I didn't fry it as long and let it bake in the oven longer."
"So yummy! My husband loved it and he is not even a fan of mushrooms! Will definitely make again!"
"Excellent! Can't wait to make again."
"I've made this a few times now, and it's fabulous. Everyone that's eaten it has wanted the recipe. It's a keeper. I've noted that the size the breasts are flattened to is not as important as simply keeping them uniform so that they cook evenly."
"Wonderful dish, a local restaurant has a similar dish, but this is much better. I tend to always pound the chicken breasts as they cook evenly and are so tender."
"Wow! This is really good! It smells amazing while it is baking and my kids just loved it. Even better as leftovers - I put it in my daughter's thermos and sent it to lunch with her the next day - 100% GONE! This is certainly a keeper. No changes to recipe necessary."
"Great dish, very easy and full of flavor. Used thin breast and did not flatten them."
"I didn't pound the chicken but let the breasts cook until their temperature was about 160 degrees. Very good recipe."
"I must admit that I was very skeptical about the ingredients. It sounded a little bland but I was wrong. This was very tasty. I would only make enough to eat right away because the leftovers didn't taste as good."
"Love this recipe! Serve it with with rice and you've got a great weekend meal and leftovers to look forward to the next night. Definitely in my rotation now!"
"My family loved it and it was so juicy and flavorful."
"Just made this tonight, and my husband and I both thought it was so good! I added some garlic powder and ground pepper to the chicken while sauteing for some extra flavor, and left off the green onions. Very tender and flavorful - great for a week night meal but would also be nice for guests. Definitely a keeper!"
"This is unbelievable. I used sliced baby portabella mushrooms I added some leftover white wine it was really elegant."
"5 star recipe. Want to make it 6 stars? Sprinkle with crisp fried crumbled bacon before serving."
"This was so easy, and so tender. This is part of our normal rotation now. By the way, this is also great without the cheese for your picky eaters, just add it after."
"I LOVE this recipe. It's great for a quick weeknight meal, but even better for company. It tastes and looks like it's a lot of work, but so simple. It's a go-to dish when I have guests over.TIP: This is also very easy to serve to someone who can't have dairy. It's still delicious if you keep the cheeses separate and sprinkle it on after dishing it up."
"I tried this recipe tonight and it was delicious...thank you...I wish I knew how to add a picture...."
"Excellent dish! Wonderful flavor! I couldn't believe that I made it. Just the right amount of everything! Thanks for a wonderful recipe!!!"
"This is excellent , I did add garlic as we love it and it was great, a new favorite!"
"I was looking for a recipe to use ingredients that I had left over, so I used onion powder instead of green onions and a sprinkling of extra-sharp cheddar cheese instead of mozzarella. My family was totally over the moon for this dish. Superb!"
"Ths is one of the best chicken recipes I've ever found."
"WOW is all I can say! This is so yummy! I think the only thing I would do differently is eliminate the salt and add a little garlic. It was perfect with an entire 8oz container of mushrooms with some rice pilaf on the side. Anything more would have been too much food. Definitely making this again soon."
"Very good! I think next time I wont add the extra salt. I think with the chicken broth, it added enough salt. It was very tasty and moist, will definitely make again!"
"These are very similar to Paula Deen's chicken Georgia recipe."
"This has been a family favorite in our house for years! I admit, I always use more cheese than it calls for, probably 1 c. and I use the whole 8 oz package of mushrooms."
"So good! If you love mushrooms, you have to try this recipe!"
"This was easy and tasty. I would add garlic to the mushroom saute next time and double the recipe - I bet it'd be great as leftovers."
"T his was so yummy and easy! We will definetely make again."
"great tasting, easy to make,"
"This may be the best chicken recipe that I have ever made. It is outstanding and can't wait to have the leftovers."
"My kids said the word "amazing" countless times tonight. It was a big hit! In addition to being family friendly, it's party worthy. A definite keeper!"
"This chicken turned out very flavorful and moist. I left out the mushrooms and added onions and Italian herbs, as I did not have any mushrooms. It is a great gourmet-style recipe that is not too complicated! I would definitely make this again!"
"I don't use the cheese. We love this dish."
"me and my husband really liked it. I didn't have any green onions but it turned out really well. I used about a cup of broth to start out with and it boiled down good. I loved the cheese on top and probably put more than called for! The mushrooms were fantastic!"
"One of my favorite "company" dishes... especially when it isn't grilling season. So moist and flavorful - I always receive rave reviews. delicious with the "Herbed Angel Hair pasta.""
"I have made this recipe numerous times since the first time I served it to my family. It is excellent. We add additional mushrooms since we love them."
"This is just the best chicken recipe. We love it."
"This is the most amazing tender chicken ever, my whole family loves this and when my son comes home from college he always asks me to make this. Along with the mushrooms I will often add green peppers and onions. Turns out everytime!"
"This was delicious, I was feeling creative so I made some modifications. I added a few splashes of white wine for flavour, sautéed some garlic and onion in with the mushrooms . I also added some season salt to the flour mix. Served with asparagus and dill cream sauce...YUMMY!My boyfriend gave it a 9/10 and said that I need to "remember this one""
"Really enjoyed this recipe. It was delicious and simple. The only thing I did differently was saute the green onions with the mushrooms. I served it with garlic egg noodles and broccoli. Even my 8 yr. old and 5 yr. old liked it. They cleaned their plates!"
"Tender and flavorful describes this dish. The family goes wild over it. It's simple and great tasting."
"I made this and it was very good, but I'mm confused that you start out with 1/2 cup broth and it says to reduce it to 1/2 cup. It ended up reducing to almost nothing (because I didn't realize it would go so fast) so I added another 1/2 cup broth to pour over the chicken."
"chicken is tender and very good. One of my favorites. My Mom makes this often and I asked her for the recipe. Now I can make it also."
"WOW! Everyone loved it! I didn't have mozzarella cheese or green onions and it was still wonderful! Next time I'll try to have both. We ate 2 hours ago and I can still taste it. Definately will make this one again!!"
"This chicken was absolutely delicious. I'm on the look-out for low carbohydrate recipes as my boyfriend is watching his carbs, and this filled the bill nicely. I could make it even more low-carb by just browning the breasts without the flour. The list of ingredients was simple, and I wasn't expecting it to taste as wonderful as it did. Great recipe! Everyone loved it."
"AWESOME flavor! I did not pound out the chicken breasts; I cut them thinner as in tenders and I added extra green onions. YUM! Looks as awesome as it tastes!"
"A meal rarely gets rated as excellent by everyone; very good yes, but not very often an excellent. This one recipe received an excellent rating from all 4 family members."
"My kids loved it. Especially my oldest daughter."
"I can't get over how delicious this dish was!!!!! It is by far, one of my favorites!! Thanks for sharing!"
"This was SOOO good! Everything was so moist and delicious! I made it for the first time 2 nights ago...and my fiance requested that I make it again the very next night! This is deff. one of the best recipe's I have ever cooked!"
"I loved it and my guest did also! I cut it in half for two people. I pounded then instead of putting flour on it I sprinkled it with McCormicks Perfect Pinch Garlic & Herb salt free. Then put it in an 8 x 8 pan with the mushrooms and onions on it and baked it, covered. Then uncovered it and put the cheese on it."
"This was phenomenal and so easy! I used chicken cutlets instead of pounding out chicken breasts (had about 7 cutlets), and I added some diced green bell pepper and minced garlic to the broth and mushrooms. It was totally amazing! I agree, no need for the extra salt, the parmesan gives plenty of flavor. Will be adding this to my faves!"
"Great. My husband loved it and we will be making it again."
"i loved it!!!!"
"This is the best chicken ever. Sometimes I add green peppers too."
"Delicious, but definitely does NOT need any added salt!"
"Such a delicious recipe!"
"Everyone I serve this too loves it! It is wonderful and easy!"
"My favorite! I made it for my dad, he said, "That is the best chicken I've ever had." Score!"
"This was very good and simple to make. I will make it again for my family. Whole family liked it."
"Hubby and I LOVED this recipe! The flavors were really outstanding! To make it a little healthier, I substituted wheat flour for the all-purpose and used part-skim mozzarella."
