This was really good. made exactly as written. Served with some steamed brocolli and spinach salad. Even our two little boys ate it, minus the mushrooms
This was very flavorful and the chicken was nice and juicy! This is a keeper.
This was pretty good... We don't like mushrooms so I didn't use them and doubled up on the onions instead. Like another reviewer said, it was a little on the sweet side so I might cut back or leave out the sugar next time. Thought the cheese would be odd paired with Asian food but I used it and ended up liking it. Overall the family enjoyed it and the house smelled wonderful while it was cooking.
I have made this twice so far. It is quick, easy and really good. Great flavor and everyone likes it. Thanks for sharing this great recipe.
