One of my favorite dishes to make.

Awesome! I did add Italian sausage suggested by other reviews and it was perfect! Loved it.

Kids and wife loved it. Co-workers said to bring in the rest to try. I need to tweak it a little. I added Italian style pork sausage because I didn't have Italian sausage and I doubled the ingredients except Spanish and cream cheese, next time I'll will. I did season the chicken to my liken. Oh, I was heavy-handed with the mozzarella. Very cheesy and very satisfied!

I had left over mushrooms so I added those and I will make again with some adjustments such as garlic and Italian seasonings.
