I loved recipe, and was surprised that cream and oil could be used in a recipe that was so low calorie. I had to make many substitutions to make it work for my house: broth for wine, half and half for heavy cream, onions for shallots, porta bella for shiitake. I know that the other ingredients would have worked better, but read the comments. I wish that the recipe had focused on ingredients that were more typical of a household, were less costly, and could be used for other recipes (how could a dieter use the rest of the heavy cream?).
Chicken Breasts with Mushroom Cream Sauce
From EatingWell: March/April 2008
The secret to a good cream sauce is always the same: not too much cream or it can be overpowering, masking the more delicate flavors. Here it contains a bountiful amount of mushrooms and is served over chicken breasts.

My family loved it. My teenage sons friends were over while I was cooking and they all wanted to stay for dinner.
I didn't have the shallot, used minced onion. No wine, either; just more broth. And I forgot the scallion topping. Oh, and didn't have shitakes so I used baby bella mushrooms. But it totally rocked. Thanks for a great recipe and a new weeknight favorite.
Very tasty and easy to put together, Would have been nice to have some left-overs, Had never had shitake mushrooms and was pleasantly surprised how great they taste. They were $11+/pound which I think is expensive. However, I will be make this dish again and again and again! Definitely a keeper.
This was really easy to make! I omitted the cooking wine and the shallot. Still turned out great! Had a really strong mushroom flavor. I prepared couscous as a side...it was my first time attempting to cook it and it turned out good too!
