Thanks Normaone for reviewing Monterey Chicken and also for mentioning that I omited mushrooms in the Ingredients. The ingredients should include 8 large mushrooms, chopped. Another reviewer also mentioned that she added 1 green and 1 red pepper, chopped which added color to the recipe. Thanks again.
OHH Ellie...I've made this dish several times since I had put the request in..and we ALL love it..like I said, adding the chopped green & red peppers just makes it perfect! THIS recipe has become one of our favs! Thanks so much for sharing!
AWESOME!!! Thanks so much...but mushrooms need to be in the ingredients.
