Contest-Winning Chicken with Mushroom Sauce Recipe

It looks impressive, but this mouthwatering dish comes together in no time. I think its flavor rivals that of many full-fat entrees found in fancy restaurants. —Jennifer Pemberton, Muncie, Indiana

"A very nice recipe. Creamy and mild, it would be a good platform to build from, adding garlic, or fresh garden herbs, for instance. I found the sauce a bit thick, so I added a bit more milk -- next time I'll use just one teaspoon of starch."

"This recipe is definitely restaurant quality in deliciousness! It's very easy to prep and cook. I had very thick boneless chicken breast that were difficult to pound out thinner so I halved them horizontally first then pounded them to the required thickness. The sauce is very tasty ( used white vermouth because I had no sherry), but I agree with others; next time I will double it! Enjoyed multi-grain rice and steamed broccoli with this dish. This recipe is now in my "keeper" file!!!"

"Delicious, but wish I had read the comments first, because it definitely needs double the sauce for 4 breasts if you serve it with rice , etc. Very easy and tasty."

"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"

"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."

"Very easy and fast week-night dinner. I added some chicken instant granules, which added a lot to the flavor of the sauce, and used wine instead of sherry, omitted salt, and a touch of garlic. As a field editor, I am happy to rate this recipe four stars."
