Creamy Mushroom Chicken

I call this meal "the easy chicken fixin'"...and love it that the leftovers are equally delicious heated up in the microwave. My husband, Tim, and I spend a lot of time riding horses and playing Cowboy Polo in summer. We are extra busy now since we just had our first child, Shelby.

    Combines two of my favorites, chicken and mushrooms. So delicious!The mushrooms and Parmesan make a wonderful sauce for noodles, rice or mashed potatoes!

    Served over rice Pilaf... was fantastic! I've also used the sauce as a substitute for a healthier MSG free cream of mushroom soup!

    very good and quick. I like the flavors and the fact that it can go with either pasta or mashed potatoes. Thanks again for another quick evening meal!
