"To the lady with the amount of mushroom problem..if original recipe was for 4 and this is for 2...cut the mushroom amount in half. Doesn't take a math major for that. I will make this probably use the same same amount as original recipe as I am a mushroom lover and buy them every week."

"This dish sounds wonderful, but the proportion of mushrooms is way out of line. The full recipe for 4 only uses 12 oz. of muchrooms, this one uses 40. Makes me distrust recipes on this site."

"Has a very good taste & chicken was moist. I used canned mushrooms because that was what I had on hand, also didn't drain to make up for the juice I would have gotten from the fresh."
