Reviews for Romano Chicken Supreme
"This was great! I had no mushrooms but did have fresh brussels sprouts, so I subbed those (I halved them before sautéing) and it was delish. I did use only a half cup bread crumbs, and that was more than enough."
"I just made this for supper tonight. Both my husband and I really liked the flavor. I will be making this again."
"I've made this recipe many times and always get compliments. Excellent!"
"I was going to make chicken cacciatore tonight (the recipe from the 1974 edition of Joy of Cooking), but this recipe caught my eye and I decided to make it instead. Awesome! chicken breasts, mushrooms and cheese--what's not to love? And I was quite surprised to learn that my ten-year-old loved the mushrooms."
