Excellent! I have made this for my fiance several times and he agrees it is a winner! This is a great recipe for a weeknight.

Excellent!! I even switched out the butter to our heart smart butter and low fat cheese. (Since my husband had the "Widow maker" back in October and was 100% blocked, I have to cook a little bit healthier). I also used chicken strips instead of the breast and diced them up. It was wonderful. A great new idea for chicken for us since he loved this recipe and he is not really a chicken eater. Thank you very much for sharing this recipe. Looking for more ideas that is quick and easy to fix. Love watching your show when I can. Thanks again. The Schwader Family. We love it!

Paula, You just keep on doing what you're doing and don't worry about comments people make that are negative. Nobody is forced to eat these foods so what's the big deal? I'm frankly fed up with agencies and the government telling us all how we should look, eat, think. Enough already! God speed!!!!! Deb

1/2 a stick of butter? Really?! I made this w 2 tablespoons of olive oil and it worked fine....just sayin! Also used just 2 tablespoon of parm cheese (shredded not grated) and pounded the chicken a bit so that it wasn't cooking for so long. Came out great...after some tweeks for my body's sake!

Really enjoyed! I breaded the chicken lightly before sauteeing, added a splash of pinot grigio to the mushroom sauce, and used our favorite gruyere instead of mozzarella.

My favorite chicken is sticky chicken. Love it. It is made by heating oil in a heavy cast iron pot, Browning the chicken,letting it stick some, adding chopped onions, bell pepper and celery ( optional )salt and pepper, cooking until veggies are done, add a little water at a time until chicken is tender. Serve over rice.

That recipe sounds very most of your recipes do! My favorite chicken recipe..& my family's too.. is Chicken roll-ups * boneless-skinless breasts - pounded thin- then cut into 3-4" X 1-2" flat pieces - Seasoned with garlic salt&pepper; *softened cream cheese mixed with chopped green onions & a bit of lemon juice *crushed Rice Krispies *Melted butter spread cream cheese mixture over each little rectangle of chicken - Roll it up (Jellyroll style) - dip in melted butter - coat with crushed rice krispies - put on "PAMmed cookie sheet & refrigerate for at least 1 hour for cream cheese to firm up again. Bake 350 degrees for 40 minute ISH. until golden browned. YUMMY... my kids eat them up like candy! We eat them as appetizers and dinner entree too... they are just so wonderfully yummy.

This is an awesome dish. My boys went crazy over it.

By Mary W. on February 27, 2012


Just made this for my grown son and me. My son freaked over it - said it was the best thing I've made in a long time. He usually eats chicken just baked - no spices or seasonings. I hardly ever cook. Will definitely make it again!!!

By Wendy on January 31, 2012


I did it on the stove as described above, without stock and it was just as good. Maybe not as salty? I saw it made on her show and this is slightly different.
