I usually bake this at about 370 degrees or so until its not pink anymore inside. I put mushrooms on top of the chicken and put some parsley on top of the mushrooms. Looks and tastes a lot li...

These were good. I am always amazed at the reviews that have not done the recipe as is given. They are rating their own concoction - not the one submitted.
