Wonderful meal. I have prepared this meal three different times with the same result, amazing. The only thing I changed after the first time was to reduce the butter by 1/3. The sauce is what puts it over the top. It is easy to make and the directions say it all.

YUM - we enjoyed this recipe very much! The sauce is so good. I had a few mushrooms on hand that I needed to use up so I sauteed them and added to the sauce. I used the suggestion of folding the chicken over like a clam and that worked well, sealing with toothpicks. Thanks for sharing this on FB - it definitely got me to try it and I'm sure it will be made again and again...

My husband and kids love this! I have made it a couple times and the only thing I think I should be noted is how to seal the chicken. The first time I rolled the breast up like a spiral and had trouble with the inside not being cooked. So now I just fold it like a clam. MUCH easier and it looked prettier because the filling stayed inside.
