Reviews for California Chicken
"This is a favorite in our house. We use smoked paprika which makes it even better, if that's possible!"
"I thought this was great"
"Easy to cook and the mushrooms give a nice rich and savory flavor to the sauce. I used self rising flour which made the crust on the chicken a bit crispier."
