    This was really delicious! I loved the flavor of the sauce. The last two tbls of butter made it seem so rich and the fresh thyme is totally worth it. I served this over mashed potatoes with a big salad.

    Delicious and easy. I served it with Yukon Gold mashed potatoes and spring greens.

    This is a good solid recipe. Easy to make and delicious. More of a family meal item. I felt the whole time I was eating it that it could use something. A squeeze of lemon or my wife suggested capers. Some sort of acid just to brighten it up. I ate the left overs last night and it was better then the original meal. I made it with roasted garlic mash potatoes and roasted asparagus.

    Simple, easy and delicious! I did't have white wine, so I used a little red wine instead- it was SOOOOO delicious! Easy clean-up, since it only uses one skillet. I would definitely make this again, both for every day (this was a busy Wednesday night) or for guests. Served with black japonica rice, on which I drizzled a little of the sauce. Thanks!

    This was an easy recipe and the flavor was fabulous. I served it over wide egg noodles and finished with a little lemon juice. I added roughly chopped parsley and the lemon zest just before serving and the presentation was outstanding.

    Lovely!! With a substitution of Marsala wine for the white wine (I didn't have white wine) it was a superb meal. Next time I make it I will use the fresh thyme from my new herb garden. That should kick it up a few notches! Thanks for the great recipe and the nutrition chart. Hubby has diabetes so counting carbs is a must.

    Very easy and quick recipe.Used fresh picked Morel mushrooms and served with mashed potatoes as suggested.

    A very tasty dish. I used a Tb of bacon fat instead of 2 tsp of canola oil. Most things just taste better when sauteed with bacon fat. Also I increased the flour to one Tb for extra thickening for the sauce and added 1/4 cup of heavy cream for a bit more richness and for some zip added one Tb of Meyer lemon juice and 1/4 tsp of Meyer lemon zest. We had this with country style (skin on and chunky) mashed potatoes and yellow crook neck squash and green beans fresh from the garden with Meyer lemon dill butter.

    I make a recipe similar to this one. I perked it up a bit with a can of fire roasted green chilis - it was incredible! I now use frozen chopped fire roasted green chilis I increase the garlic & add a couple canned chipotle chilis (they are dried smoked jalapeno peppers). I have also used a little bit of chipotle powder if I don't have canned chipotles. BE CAREFUL they have a very strong hot smokey flavor & can over power a dish easily. If you don't like hot just use a little to taste. I also don't add the shallots or the flour. If you cook it long & slow until it almost falls off the bone it thickens itself. I use chicken leg quarters. I brown them pretty good with thin sliced onions in a little canola oil before hand & add a large can of cream of mushroom soup. Don't let it put you off It sounds like a totally different recipe but it isn't - it is a chicken mushroom dish with green chilis and a titch of chipotle. I serve it over rice - We love it - I think you'll love too

    Very solid recipe! I'll be making this again and again. I might only add 1 tbsp butter though just to lighten the sauce a bit. I served it with smashed cauliflower and pan roasted brussels sprouts.

    Fantastic dish. I didn't have any fresh Thyme, so I used a little less ground Thyme. Paired it with mashed cauliflower (with olive oil). Will make again!

    Outstanding! I made it exactly according to the recipe. Very easy, with ingredients I always have on hand. DH loved it a d wants it "in the rotation". I am always looking for a tasty after-work easy meal, nd this is perfect. Don't forget the thyme. It adds the final touch.

    Had it with a cup of whole grain pasta (per serving) on the side. AMAZING!!!!

    This was delicious! I only keep chicken bouillon powder on hand and because I can't control for the salt in that, I omit or cut back on the additional salt in the recipe. And when I haven't had fresh thyme on hand, I've substituted other fresh herbs such as tarragon or rosemary.

    I followed the directions carefully but I felt like the food still tasted bland. Perhaps some cheese or madeira wine would taste better with the dish.

  • ChefLeesher Posted: 02/21/12

    I thought was a really tasty recipe to start from. However, I agree it needs "something". We added lemon juice at the end. I agree capers would work, I can even agree with the person suggesting bacon. At any rate this sauce is a great starting point.

    We made this recipe except we didn't have any wine to include so we just used chicken stock. It was very solid and both kids liked it.

    This was yummy! I've been trying to find recipes that really "dress-up" boneless, skin-less chicken breast and this one was fantastic! This is a new favorite at our house and will be added to the rotation. :)

    This was really delicious. I substituted 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme for the fresh (forgot to buy it). Served with brown rice and a green salad.

    Made exactly as directed. The mushroom sauce was perfect

  • kelliminn Posted: 01/09/14

    This was so good! I had to make a couple of changes to work with what I had on hand though. I used chopped onion instead of shallots and fresh rosemary instead of thyme. The flavor was amazing! I served it with wild rice and broccoli. It was a very easy dinner that I will definitely be making on a regular basis. Even better is that I usually have all the ingredients on hand! My husband loved it and even my picky 4 year old ate it without noticing the onions or mushrooms that I had chopped up in his. Definitely a keeper!

    This turned out really good. We don't drink wine so I can't see purchasing it just to cook with, so I just used additional chicken stock. When I added the mushrooms I also added asparagus, it made a delish sauce with side vegetables included, served on top of mashed Texas russet potatoes.

  • vmartinikitty Posted: 09/23/13
