This was my great-grandmother’s recipe. I have another version made with mushroom soup, which cuts down on prep time, but sometimes you just can’t take shortcuts! Try serving it with egg noodles and steamed veggies. —Julie Stack, Pewaukee, Wisconsin

"We really did not care for this at all. The stuffing had FAR too much poultry seasoning in it. They also took a long time to make. I also think that the cooking time is WAY too long. If you are pounding your chicken out thin, it doesn't take almost an hour to cook. The mushroom sauce also didn't have much taste to it. Had to add some spices. Will not make again."
