In my opinion, you can't get a better flavor combination than chicken, mushrooms and onions sauteed together. Mmmmm! This recipe is adapted from Cooking Light magazine.

I thought the flavors were great! I used leftover chicken that I add the spices too after I chopped it up and added it into the pan with the onions and mushrooms. Will make again!!

Our family loved this recipe. It was fast, easy, the chicken was moist, the flavors were good but most importantly BOTH my children liked it. My son, who never eats much, ate his whole quesadillas and said this was his favorite. Thank you. I will be making this again.

Good, but not too exciting I thought. My husband loved it, but I thought it could use some more flavor or something else inside.
