"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."
