Chicken and Feta Stuffed Mushroom Caps

I saw these gorgeous fresh mushrooms in the store, and it seemed they were asking to be stuffed – clean, big and even sized.

I decided to stuff them with creamy chicken and feta cheese mix dressed with sour cream and a bit of fresh parsley. If this sounds like a good idea to you, try this recipe.

And by the way, it can be served as an appetizer (especially if you use bite size mushroom caps), snack or even main course.

Ingredients:


How to prepare, step-by-step:

  1. Prepare ingredients: mine mushrooms were rather big, 10 of them made up for 1.5lb, if you use smaller size mushrooms it will take a bit more time to stuff them, but amount of ingredients for stuffing should be about the same:
