"I thickened the sauce and served over rice. My husband and ten-year-old really enjoyed it! Since it is just the three of us, we had a fare amount of left overs. So, I shredded the leftover chicken into the mushroom sauce and will serve over biscuits later in the week."

"Very good for first round, but needs a little kick of something. Maybe some onion would do the trick. Will definitely make again."

"Awesome recipe and it cooks in the slow cooker ---What could be better!!!!! I just squeeze on fresh lemon juice before i add the seasoning. I'm not a lemon-pepper fan. I also season a little extra for more flavor."

"My family and I really liked this recipe. It was super easy served with rice and a side veggie. I wasn't organized enough to use the crock pot. I cooked this in my dutch over and instead of using lemon pepper, which I didn't have, I added the juice of a fresh lemon. It was great! I will make it again and I would try it in the crock pot of these days."

"I was expecting a stroganoff style taste to this chicken, but it was different and very delicious. Even my mushroom hating children loved it. I also appreciate that it is very easy to make. It's a keeper!!"

"Made this today. I added chopped onions and garlic, used chicken broth instead of white wine. My family liked it. I will probably make again but add even more seasoning. It was a little bland, but nothing a few more seasoning or maybe a shot of worcestershire sauce wouldn't fix."

"Very easy to make and the chicken is so tender."

"I have been making this for several years now and it is still our favorite meal. We make it at twice a month. So easy and very good. We serve it over rice and sometimes buttered noodles. The only change I make is cut hte salt back and I use the whole can of chicken broth, so it doesnt go to waste and I think it makes the chicken even more moist. Quick and easy, love it."

"I don't like mushroom soup so I used cream of celery - it was delish!!!"
