"This is so Delicious!!"

"I amped this up a little bit. I added onion and garlic to the mushrooms, omitted the pimentos, added some thyme and nutmeg to the mushrooms and onions when I was cooking them, after I added the chicken I put some white wine in to reduce it, and then added some dried chives. Had it with a baked potato and it was DELICIOUS!"

"Yes, this is an easy and quick meal. I did not use the pimentos or mushrooms, but I did add onions. I served this over rice."
