 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    5      Tablespoons   Butter
      1/2  Pound         Mushrooms -- chopped fine
      1/2  Teaspoon      Salt
      1/4  Teaspoon      Freshly ground pepper
      1/4  Teaspoon      Nutmeg -- optional
    8                    Chicken breast halves, pounded flat -- boned
    1 1/2  Cups          Fresh bread crumbs
      1/2  Cup           Heavy cream
      1/2  Cup           Chicken broth
 
 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Melt 4 tablespoons of the butter in a
 skillet.  Add the mushrooms, salt and pepper, and cook, stirring often,
 until the mushrooms turn very dark and absorb all the butter.  Remove
 from the heat and stir in 3/4 cup of the bread crumbs and the nutmeg.
 Divide the mushroom stuffing into 8 portions and place a portion in
 the center of each piece of chicken.  Fold the chicken around the
 stuffing, and place, seam side down, in a buttered shallow baking
 dish.  Melt the remaining tablespoon of butter and brush over the
 chicken.  Sprinkle with the remaining 3/4 cup of bread crumbs.  Pour
 on cream and broth. Bake for 30 minutes, until lightly brown.
