      I made this last night and it was GREAT. Definitely a keeper. It is very similar to another recipe I use, but I liked the freshly chopped basil flavor in this one. I added about a tablespoon of finely chopped red pepper for colour, but otherwise kept the recipe the same. It not only tastes wonderful but the presentation is excellent as well and I can't wait to serve it to company.

      We enjoyed this chicken dish very much! We made no modifications to the ingredients other than to use seasoned breadcrumbs and baby bella mushrooms. We used a pinot grigio for the white wine. Next time DH said he would just let the sauce reduce longer and possibly omit the flour. We served the dish with broccoli rabe. Thank you for a nice dinner.

      Loved this meal! Made as directed except used about 6 oz of goat cheese. I used chicken cutlets from the butcher to omit the step of thinning the breast. I had about six large cutlets. I stuffed them the nite before and left in the fridge to set-up. I did not use the twine or toothpicks & they stayed together fine. I also breaded them about 4 hours before cooking & returned them to fridge so the crumbs would adhere. The mushroom sauce was simple & delicious. I'll be making that often as a sauce with many other dishes. Served with steamed broccoli & rice pilaf. Thank you, Miss Gracie!
