"I tweaked it a bit by using boneless breasts and wrapping each breast in a slice of bacon. The taste is rich and deliciously satisfying."

"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."

"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."
