Loved this recipe. Next time I will make double sauce as it so yummy over mashed potatoes or rice. I also will brown the chicken a bit before baking to get rid of the water or buy chicken that is not infused with it! May try with asparagus too.

My family enjoyed this recipe. I flattened the chicken and marinaded it prior to cooking. Still tasted a bit bland though. Would have been even better with mashed potatoes but we are watching our carbs. All in all, good recipe and will try it again.

I made this with two cans of cream of mushroom soup -- I love the extra sauce for my rice. I only had three chicken breasts and I cut them up as a previous person mentioned. I didn't use mushrooms as I didn't have any. LOVE LOVE LOVED it !!! I've made something similar but this really tops it. My new favourite go to. Fresh garlic (I store my cloves in the freezer for ease of use).
