This is a nice twist on the traditional recipe--not dripping in butter! Easy enought for a weeknight dinner. My brother made it for a Sunday dinner, he had gotten it out of a local paper, and it was a big hit! You can use white meat chicken if desired.

Thanks to Pic A Chef I picked this recipe to try.

For us I chose to add herbs to our dish, Poultry Seasoning, Thyme and OOPs I forgot what my last pick was. To us I just felt it needed this to inhance the flavor. I also chose to leave out the mushrooms.

Nice dish to try.
