    this was a very good recipe. the chicken turned out tender and full of flavor. the mushrooms were good, although i might eliminate the added salt. the polenta with asiago was very tasty.

    This dish is outstanding and it makes a spectacular presentation. I served it to company and everyone loved it. I did not change any of the ingredients but when I make it again, I will use less mushrooms. The 20 oz. called for was too much and it makes the dish a little pricey.

    Fantastic recipe. Made it exactly as written and it was great. The orange is very subtle. The truffle /mushroom flavors were wonderful. Highly recommend. I would use a grave separater instead of the baggie thing if you have it.

    I made this for my husband and myself last night and we both continually raved over the results. It was a late nght at work, so I decided to skip roasting the chicken and used boneless, skinless breasts instead, sauteeing them with the ingredients called for with the bird and it worked wonderfully. I deglazed the pan with the white wine. Easy and quick for a weeknight meal.

    This is a case of me wishing I knew ahead of time how much prep time was involved. There is a lot of time required in putting this together. It was tasty and we enjoyed equally the chicken, polenta and mushrooms, but for the length of time it took, I probably won't do it again.

    Absolutely delicious. Followed the directions except skimming fat off the drippings before making "gravy" (which was really more of a jus). Just ran out of time. I'll skim the leftover jus after the fat congeals in the fridge. I used 3/4 c regular (not quick cooking polenta), and will increase polenta by 50% next time as we have lots of chicken, jus and mushrooms left, not a lot of polenta. Not sure - maybe the yield is less on the regular v. quick cooking?

    Excellent, worthy of a holiday meal or dinner guests.

    Served this for my Christmas dinner and it was a huge success. I used a 5.5 lb turkey breast instead of a whole chicken and it turned out phenomenal. I doubled the gravy - it was delicious. I did overcook the polenta slightly, it thickened up a little too much, but live and learn, right? The mushrooms were amazing. Just delicious!

    This was just delicious. My husband inhaled it. I used the convection roast function on my oven and produced the most moist roast chicken ever. It wasn't a difficult recipe and will definitely be making this again.
