Chicken Genoa

Donata Natalino


My Mother in Law made this for a family dinner years ago, at first I wasn't going to try for I am not fond of mushrooms but am so glad I did, the flavor of this chicken is amazing. Now whenever we have company for dinner this is usually what I make. It's easy, inexpensive, foolproof and always a hit.
