I used chicken breasts in a casserole dish, and canned mushrooms. Very yummy and moist! Definitely making it again. I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 star only because it would've been nice if the corn flake crumbs would've been crispy. Mine weren't - maybe because of the butter melting on them? But a definite make again recipe!

  3. Sprinkle generously with cornflake crumbs and dot with pieces of butter.
