Chicken Gruyere with Sautéed Mushrooms

“You can increase the cheese and mushroom quantities according to your liking. You can also make it a day ahead for appetizers. When making a day ahead, follow all instructions but do not broil. Instead, warm in a 350 degree oven approximately 20 minutes before serving. This recipe is a family favorite.”
– Barbara Killean, AVV Tasting Room Sales associate
