Loved this chicken -what not to love combining all our favorite ingredients with chicken! Not only great tasting it has wow appeal when it comes to presentation. Other than being very genereous with the mushrooms I made as posted making for a wonderful meal - would give you more stars if I could! Thank you for sharing.
