Agreed..this was fantastic! I followed the recipe except I added fresh parmesan cheese before closing it. I also was skeptical about the 'flour only' batter..so I dredged in egg and then flour....deliously moist. Definite keeper and the sauce is a must!!! you and look up marsala sauce in recipezaar and it goes great with this!!!
Very good! Our cupboard was bare of mushrooms, so we added a bit more spinach. We also added a thin slice of Black Forest ham and a thin slice of Swiss cheese before rolling. While the chicken was finishing up in the oven, we deglazed the pan, then made a sauce with Dijon mustard and a touch of heavy cream. Sliced diagonally and served over a bed of wide egg noodles with fresh herbs, topped with the mustard cream, we agree that this is elegant enough for company!
