I give this recipe a good to high rating because it just tastes good and is realitivly easy to make. I used Cream Sherry as I didn't have any Marsala, and it turned out really good. Broiling the cheese is a really good idea, its adds just a little crunch that makes this dish supurb!
I have made this recipe and sautéed the green onions with the mushrooms. Then removed and sautéed the chicken breasts which I did not cover during cooking. Made my sauce in the same pan and poured over my chicken. I just had the butcher cut chicken breasts in half. Did not pound them. I baked for approximately 30 minutes covered and they came out great! The sauce is excellent!
This was AMAZING with a few minor changes. I only used 6 breast halves, but the same amount of the sauce. I sauteed onions and garlic in the same pan after I removed the mushrooms. To the sauce mixture I added dried oregano and thyme and added back the onions and garlic to let it all reduce together. I served with mashed potatoes.
