"I loved this. I'm a sucker for anything creamed and was delighted to find this lighter version for a mushroom cream sauce. Will be making this again."

"We really did not like this. We have a house full of chicken lovers, mushroom lovers, creamy sauce lovers....but nobody liked it. Can't really say what was wrong with it....maybe not enough spices? Needs more garlic? Too much wine? Not sure, but definitely needed more taste. Sorry."
