      Dorothy, this was like a bit of heaven on my plate!!! I made a slight modification to your recipe. My local market had skinless-boneless turkey breast which I sliced into cutlets and used instead of chicken. My kids won't eat mushrooms (can you believe that ?!?!), but they loved the sauce, and it left more mushrooms for hubby and I. I served it with a rice pilaf and broccolli, and they all raved about this one! Wonderful recipe.

      I have the Cooking Light cookbook that has this recipe. It is a favorite in our family. I've made it for 20 years now. I like to serve it with steamed broccoli with orange sauce on it (recipe also in that book). I like the chicken and sauce on rice, but once I made Alfredo noodles and my husband now expects that as a side dish. I've learned to make that 'light', too. Using this recipe again tonight since the cookbooks are packed away. Thanks,!
