This GLORIOUS dish (see what I did there?) is based on a Betty Crocker from back in the day and let me just say…it is AMAZING! Seriously SO GOOD! This is a recipe you should keep forever and always serve to your favorite guests.

Start by breading the chicken pieces in flour and then brown on both sides.

Then sauté mushrooms, onions and garlic in butter and spoon all that yumminess over the chicken in a baking dish.

Now make the creamy, yummy sauce by melting butter and whisking in flour to make a roux.

Add chicken broth and cook and stir until it begins to thicken.

Stir in the half and half and vinegar… stir and cook until heated through.

Pour all over the chicken and mushrooms.

Cover with the cheese slices and bake!

Bake for 25 minutes, remove the foil and then broil the cheese until bubbly.

Top with parsely and dish it up!
