Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



DELICIOUS! I used a full pound of baby bella mushrooms, added some sweet onions. Since I didn't have anything to pound the chicken, I used a rolling pin, which didn't really work. Chicken was tender and juicy. I also used part skim mozzarella cheese. DH had two helpings and actually uttered that is was good, which translated means 5-Stars. Made for Billboard tag.
