Reviews for Contest-Winning Chicken with Mushroom Sauce
"I loved this recipe!! Didn't make enough sauce though; will need to double if making more than two breasts."
"Delicious. Sauce for four chicken breasts is really sauce for two. I added one clove minced garlic. Next time we'll try adding lemon and capers"
"My husband and i both loved it. I did add a few cloves of garlic as we are garlic lovers, but this recipe will definitely be on our regular rotation. Easy to make, low calorie, and delicious!"
"Loved this dish! Made it as written. Easy to make and easy on the calories."
"Yummy and easy and low cal. No wonder it was a winner in the contesr. It is a winner. I did not use the sherry. That is too strong a flavor to me."
"Good recipe, and quite easy to fix. I opted for the chicken broth instead of sherry, but everyone like it. The fresh mushrooms and thinly sliced onions were good, even reheated the next day."
"Delicious--mushrooms were on sale at my local grocery store, so I gave this recipe a try. We loved it and I think I will double the sauce next time as it was delicious on the mashed potatoes I served along with the chicken. I didn't flatten my chicken breasts quite enough, so I'll do a better job on that next time. They were still good, just took longer for them to cook all the way through."
"This was a good recipe. It was fairly quick to make and the sauce was rich. My husband loves gravy, so I doubled the sauce."
"Very good; hubby liked it a lot. I used marsala cooking wine in place of the sherry and it turned out fine."
"This was a very nice recipe. I made just as directed except that I used canned mushrooms. I'm sure fresh would have been better but the canned were fine. Everyone that tried it enjoyed it. I served it with brown rice."
"Really enjoyed this recipe. I only used 2 breasts so there was plenty of sauce."
"I forgot to add that next time I would add a little thyme and maybe even sage to give the sauce a little more flavor."
"This was very good. I took the advice of a previous comment and doubled the sauce mix plus I added extra mushrooms. I served it over mashed potatoes."
"Really, really yummy! I served it over mashed potatoes. The sauce is so delicious."
"Not a bad base recipe. Will add to it next time to spice it up a little."
"I make this almost once a week, it's one of our favorites! We use sherry and thin sliced chicken breasts."
"Very good! One of my favorites when I have extra mushrooms to use up."
"My family and I loved it. I used the sherry instead of chicken broth. Gives it great flavor. Will make again."
"So easy to make and it was great over "leftover Chinese sticky rice"."
"My DH really liked it. Next time I might serve it over rice or orzo."
"This was a very good recipe. I used portobello mushrooms, but I love all kinds of mushrooms, so it doesn't matter. I'll defintely make this again."
"This is very good and easy to make. If I changed anything it would be to add more chicken broth so there was more sauce."
