Ingredients

1 pound mushrooms
finely chopped
¼ teaspoon black pepper
freshly ground
*
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
optional
*
½ cup sour cream
5 tablespoons butter
or margarine
½ teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon italian seasoning
*
1 ½ cups bread crumbs
fresh
4 chicken breasts
boneless, skinless
½ cup chicken broth
Italian seasoning
¼ tablespoon oregano
*
½ tablespoon basil
¼ tablespoon rosemary leaves
*

Directions

The chicken breasts should be boned and skinless, halved (8 pieces) and pounded flat.

Seasoned bread crumbs may also be used.

Preheat the oven to 350℉ (180℃).

Melt 4 tablespoons of the butter in a skillet.

Add the mushrooms, salt and pepper and cook, stiring often until the mushrooms turn very dark and absorb all the butter.

Remove from the heat.

Add the italian seasoning to the bread crumbs.

Stir in ¾ cup of the bread crumbs and the nutmeg.

Divide the mushroom stuffing into 8 portions and place a portion of the stuffing in the center of each piece of chicken.

Roll the chicken around the stuffing and place, seam side down, in a buttered shallow casserole/ baking dish.

Melt the remaining tablespoon of butter and brush over the chicken.

Sprinkle with the remaining ¾ cup of bread crumbs until all the pieces are covered.

Mix the sour cream with the heated chicken broth and pour over the chicken.

Bake for 45 to 60 minutes, until lightly browned.

Also, try a cup of broccoli flowerlets and/or walnuts, finely chopped, added to the mushroom and breadcrumb mixture.

This was pretty good, the sour cream coated the chicken breast and the resulting sauce had a very nice baked flavor. I wasn't too fond of the bread crumbs with the mushrooms in the stuffing. Seemed to make the filling a bit pasty I thought. It would have been just fine to leave out the bread crumbs. It may have been because I used dried bread crumbs instead of fresh.

Directions could be a little clearer but I made this dish and it was OUTSATNDING!! My wife said it is a "Do over" so you know it had to be good. She doesn't put a lot of those on the do over list.
