I made this with salmon instead of chicken and it worked out great. The carrots may have stolen the show, though. They were delicious. I would definitely make this again.

I absolutely loved this dish. It was so gorgeous and delicious! However, we had to double the amount of panko mix, as the original batch barely coated one mushroom. Also, it made sooo many veggies! You could probably cut down just a bit. The flavors were incredible, though, and this is definitely going down as one of my faves ever.
