Portobello Mushroom Stroganoff
I prepared this using some of the other suggestions; added garlic, reduced the sour cream. I added paprika & a tiny bit of celery seeds. Two of our children are vegetarians, with one closer to vegan so the vegan Worcestershire Sauce is a staple in our cupboard, I added a dash, plus a dash of Kikoman. It went over well here & I will keep it on my go-to list.. Thanks so much everyone.

Baked Apricot Chicken
This recipe is super easy and THAT makes it appealing to me. I used thighs and removed the skins like some other reviewers did. The sauce cooked down, dark & delicious; I served it with rice. Next time I will try Russian Dressing to compare flavors. Adding fresh garlic is also good, as others have previously pointed out. Thank you, Jeanne for an easy tasty family meal.

Deviled Chicken Breasts
Great flavor, I also made small changes to suit my family, I used flour vs bread crumbs, skipped the savory, used fresh mushrooms, and used Dijon mustard vs yellow mustard. I reduced the sauce in a skillet; thank you for a terrific recipe.
