Reviews for Chicken with Mushroom Sauce
"This is wonderful....I used fat free half & half instead of heavy cream and cut the butter to 2 T. I think it's wrong to give a bad review just because of the calorie/fat count....it's not fair to the person who has submitted the recipe."
"Wouldn't even consider making it with that many calories per serving. If the heavy whipping cream was replaced with non-fat evaporated milk suspect it would be just as good and a whole lot fewer calories!"
