I like this dish because it is versatile in that you can change the seasonings to alter the flavor even though the flavor in itself is wonderful. The walnuts add a great nutty flavor to the mushrooms and chicken strips. It is a filling meal. It can easily be divided for more depending on what you are serving or if it is the only meal.
