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)."
"very good recipe love the mushrooms"
"yummy and easy"
"Fabulous recipe! Rave reviews from guests who have tried it at our house. :-)"
"My family loved this recipe and they aren't usually crazy about any type of gravy or sauce"
"Nice varriation with sauce on top as opposed to being smothered in it."
"The mushroom sauce is wonderful. Our son suggested cutting up the chicken and adding it to the sauce. Then serving over noodles instead of the red potatoes. I look forward to trying his suggestion next time."
