"Marinating the chicken over night deepens the flavor, but if time is an issue don't worry about it. There is so much flavor in this dish your guests will love it anyways."

    The prep is definitely worth the effort. I marinated the chicken and veg for 4 hours. Couldn't get portabellas so used some very large button mushrooms which worked well. I baked this for 3 hours covered and then uncovered it for the last hour. The chicken was a tad on the dry side so next time, I will leave it covered the whole time or do it in the slow cooker as Blue Rose did. Our guests loved this meal and my husband said it tasted even better when he finished off the leftovers the next night. Thank you Village Chef for this lovely chicken dinner. Made for PAC Spring 2010.
    A family favorite. Because of how hot it was outside I chose to cook this recipe in my crock pot. We loved the favors of this recipe. I would not change a thing. Looking forward to making this recipe again.Thanks to PAC I got the chance to try this nice recipe I would not have tried.


Hi, I am a mother of a an amazing 4 year old boy and wife of a great man. I have changed this year from owning a restaurant to cooking privately and being a grounds keeper. It has been great to go from being stuck in a building all day to spending all day outside.
