Chicken in Wine Cream Sauce

    Great creamy consistency!! Flavor was good, although I might play around with it a little. Based on prior reviews, doubled most spices and served over brown rice. It was better over angel hair pasta, though, when we had leftovers. Reheated very well.

    At first I thought the spices were overwhelming - I halved the recipe but used the full amount of spices for four servings. But once the cheese was added, they were sufficiently toned down to make a really tasty dish. I served it with rice cooked in chicken broth and plain steamed asparagus, and it made a satisfying meal. I would definitely rate this as a special occasion dish.

    This sounded great, but the sauce is a bit bland. I followed directions with the exception of using chicken breasts instead of thighs. The sauce has a great consistency, just no flavor. Next time I will try simmering some fresh herbs in the sauce and maybe double the rub recipe as others suggested. I also agree that the wild rice is not a good pairing. Will try noodles or brown rice next time.

    AWFUL. I was so embarrassed- I made this for the first time when some friends came over for dinner. It was so bland. I wanted to chuck the whole thing-but everyone kept saying "No, no, its fine." But we spent the whole evening trying to figure out what spice or something could have made it better. The worst part, no one ate more then 4 or 5 bites. What a waste.

    I really thought this was a great meal. I took some suggestions from other reviewers. I halved the sauce but upped the spices by 50% (left the rosemary the same). I just put all of it in a ziplock bag to coat the chicken. The sauce got a little thick while cooking so I thinned it out with chicken broth. Delicious!!

    I thought it was bland and my family did not like it.

    I thought it turned out tasty, we used a mix of wild mushrooms, good dry white wine and it tasted great. Only change we made was adding some capers to brighten the "heavy" cream sauce. Also served over noodles - much better than rice.

    OK - no matter what you like about the title, or the ingredients do NOT waste your ingredients or time. I'm a bit of a cook... I thought I could revive this recipe and make an awesome dinner. 2 C + of varied wild (expensive) mushrooms, a handful of fresh herbs (thyme, basil, oregano and dried rosemary) a cup of good wine and still blah. Didn't cover the simmering sauce - put mushrooms in right away to meld the flavors.... added extra garlic, S&P - and still same as others have said. Embarrassing. Luckily I'm home alone tonight and didn't feed this to my loved ones. Hmmmm what to do with the left overs? :(
