    I make this at least once a month. I serve it to company as well and always get a good response. One of my favorite meals.

    I made this with 3lbs of chicken and whole baby bella mushrooms, I added 1/3 more of each ingredient to make up the difference in chicken. The flavor was great and the spices really seal into the chicken when you cook them the first time. We had garlic mashed potatoes on the side and they mixed well with the sauce.

    Absolutely delicious. I substituted fat-free half-and-half for heavy whipping cream, and served over mashed redskin potatoes.
