Reviews for Chicken Portobello with Mashed Red Potatoes
"My husband said this was the best meal I've ever cooked - and I'm not exactly a slouch in the kitchen!"
"This is a heavy meal with a lot of calories but it was amazing if you like mushrooms!"
"My husband loved this the first time I made it and has requested it several more times."
"This was Delicious...great flavor. I can't wait to make it again."
"The chicken was delicious!!! It is just me and my husband, so I used about half the chicken but still made all of the sauce. It was just about the perfect amount, although I would leave out a little of the cream cheese (and the extra salt)."
