"Great recipe. I added a little extra oil when cooking the chicken and cooked the mushrooms in there afterwards. I also marinated the chicken in italian dressing from olive garden for about 15 minutes after flattening it. Will definitely use this again."

"I completely doubled the recipe for a company dinner--it was fantastic, though total prep/cook time took me 1.5 hours. Since I had planned enough time to get it done, all went well."

"So easy, so good! I doubled the sauce (using half wine, half chicken broth) and served the chicken over angel hair pasta. A weeknight menu-saver that feels like you're eating in a restaurant!"
