    This was a good, comfort food, chicken dish that's easy to make. Like it as it is but may need a little "oomph" for just a little more flavor.

    The following changes made this a 4.5 star dish: While preparing the rest of the dish, roast 1 bunch of asparagus at 400 F. Use only 1 cup of chicken stock and 1/2 cup of water with the listed onion, celery, and thyme. Simmer on the stove while pan-searing chicken in olive oil until cooked through. Remove chicken from pan, reduce heat slightly, add a tsp or two of butter and saute mushrooms for 4-5 minute; salt and pepper. (slice chicken while mushrooms cook) THEN add to pan shallot, garlic and saute for 3-4 minutes. Add wine, simmer until mostly evaporated. Add flour and cook a minute or two. Strain solids from stock/veggies, add liquid to mushroom mix. Boil 1 minute or until slightly thickened. Remove from heat, stir in creme fraiche, sliced chicken and roughly chopped roasted asparagus. Serve with toasted rosemary olive oil bread. Fresh minced thyme/parsley on top.
