Worth the effort - very tasty. I used a pack of variety dried mushrooms. The sauce is thin but can be thickened on the stove with corn starch.

The flavors are excellent, and it is good in the slow cooker, but I thought the sauce was runny, so I put it back on the stovetop for the last 20 minutes and boiled to reduce the sauce down. I'm glad I did as it really intensified the flavor. Also, I used more stock and less cream to make it more healthy.

I agree, the sauce is very thin, but we soaked it up with french bread. I used fresh baby bella mushrooms, quartered, and dried herbs added at the beginning in the crockpot. Rich, delicious flavor!

I made this Chorizo-Beef Nachos at home last week .. even though it has lots of recipes in it .. I think it is just perfect! It tastes good! and definitely worth it . I made it together with some recipes I got from thesaladsite..

After reading other reviews, I deicded to lightly coat my chicken in flour to thicken up the sauce. Also, fresh herbs can be expensive so I purchased dried ones. While the cream sauce was reducing i seasoned it with the herbs that I had on hand.. worked out pretty well.

Made this by stove top as I am never satisfied with slo cooker. Instead of the fat in cream and the runiness it creates I used cream of chicken soup, Alfredo i n a jar works too..it was super and has a short cooking time and no rubbery chicken. Had been looking for this recipe for ages as its an oldie. Love this site it has almost everything.(except an old fashioned mustard pickle recipe).

I prepared this recipe last night and my husband loved it. I didn't have all the called for ingredients so I improvised. I only had 1/2 cup of whipping cream so I added 1 cup of plain yogurt and 1/2 cup of sour cream. I used 12 skinless thighs instead of 8. I only had 1 green onion so I added 1/2 chopped white onion and I used 8 garlic cloves. I didn't have any bacon so I substituted with real bacon bits.i used regular large mushrooms (about 3 cups sliced). And just because I had it, I added yellow zucchini, peeled and cut in 1 in chunks. I placed the zucchini on top as I knew they would cook too fast in the sauce, The chicken was very tender and moist. The sauce was not too heavy making the dish quite tasty. We will be having the leftovers for dinner tonight.

Wow!! Me and my family love this!! I made a few changes due to affordability: I Instead of Morels I used the shiitake and only 2 oz ( in the end I added some fresh baby Bella's to ensure plenty of mushrooms) next time I'll just use baby Bella's . I doubled the bacon, increased wine to 1 cup increased heavy cream to 13/4 used red potatoes with skin on and used only thighs. Didn't use leeks or shallots but used green onions. ( to me this made the dish a little lower cost and taste was out if this world! Did extra tarragon ( unique flavor so see what you like first)

This meal is fantastic! It doesn't need to be thicker as others have mentioned, just soak up the broth with Italian bread, it is delectable! The bacon flavor is outstanding!

My husband and kids loved this dish!! I made this dish a few weeks ago. Somewhat easy to make. The first time I made it, I used baby portabella mushrooms because the dried morels are $20.00 for 6oz in my local farmers market. I also used fingerling potatoes, not baby potatoes. I bought all of the other ingredients. My family absolutely loved this dish. It's really rich and creamy, very flavorful. I'm making it again tonight, instead of baby portabella mushrooms, I'm using button mushrooms. I'm also using baby potatoes this time, could not find the fingerlings at my local grocery store. I forgot the shallots this time as well. I have everything else. It's slowly cooking right now and we are looking forward to eating it for tonight's dinner!!
