Sorry Chef John, I failed the experiment. I added diced onions, instead of water,I added chicken broth and cream of mushroom soup plus I used leg quarters because I don't like chicken breasts. All in all this was an extremely good dish.

This was yummmy. The browned skin really made it. Would have liked a little more sauce as had 3 different vegetables with it. Really thought this would have been boring but was surprised how nice it was. Simple and quick too. Thanks

I really liked this recipe. I just wish it made more of the juice. Maybe because I made mashed potatoes and put the juice on them too. Another wonderful and easy recipe by Chef John. Next time I will serve this with a salad on the side and keep all the juice for the chicken like it shows on the video.

This is the best chicken and mushrooms I have ever had. My husband really loved it. Made by following the original recipe, the mushroom sauce was flavorful and delicious. Easy to make. Had to restrain ones self to keep from adding other seasonings but really did not need them. Tastes like it had lots of other ingredients. Roasted mushroom flavor came thru really well. Will make this again.

I've made this many times just as written. The simplicity is what makes it. Two ingredients. I've done with beef and peppers and pork and garlic (mahvelous!)as well. The point is to make you think, I think!
