Yummy! I didn't have boneless skinless chicken breasts so used bone-in skinless thigh/leg quarters - I doubled the recipe so there would be leftovers. :) For the mushrooms I used baby bellas - since they are my favorite. I prepared this dish the night before and let it sit in the fridge all night and all the next day until ready to put in the oven. Since I used bone-in chicken - I opted to lower the oven temperature to 375 degrees and baked for 1 hour 15 minutes. It may have been too long - but I wanted to make sure there wasn't any pink. lol The meat was so moist and juicy and tender. I removed the chicken from the pan and left the cream. I added some pasta to the cream with some garlic salt, pepper and additional parmesan cheese. Mixed it all together for an "alfredo" kind of pasta. Went really well with the chicken! Thanks so much for sharing. Made for the March 2010 Aussie/NZ recipe swap.
Delicious!! Everyone loved even the ultra finiky ones. I only had 6 hours to refrigerate, but it still came out great. We had it with garlic mashed potatoes and oven roasted peppers and onions in olive oil. MM Good!
Made this for lunch today. It was really quick to prepare but it was extremely bland. With all the good reviews I expected it to be delicious but it was quite flavorless. I followed the recipe precisely. Thanks for the recipe but won't be making this again.
