    My family really liked this recipe and it's simple and quick to prepare but it seemed a bit bland for me. There's nothing wrong with it but if you're like me and prefer more flavor then I'd suggest adding extra spices to the flour, garlic to the mushrooms and perhaps a splash of white wine to the sauce. I will definitely make this again.

    Easy, good flavor, not dry which are important factors to consider with anything you cook.

    I jazzed this up by adding poultry seasoning to the flour coating, adding minced garlic to the pan with the chicken, and a splash of white wine todeglaze the pan. I also used 1 cup broth instead of 1/3 cup. This was easy and delicious. Everyone liked it.
