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.

This recipe is delicious and fragrant.

My family loved it. My teenage sons friends were over while I was cooking and they all wanted to stay for dinner.

It's easy and I had almost every ingredient.

My daughter dislikes any type

My daughter dislikes any type of onion and mushrooms. I used an emersion blender and puréed the sauce. Added more chicken broth to thin it out and it was delicious!

Quick, easy and delicious!

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.

See the title!

Gourmet, French flavors blend perfectly!

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.

Easy and fairly quick.

Yum, delicious!

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!

Great flavor, easy to prepare, filling and delicious!

Easy and tasty Chicken dish

I made this dish last night for dinner and it was really good. I didn't have any white wine but I seem to think it would have added a bit more depth to the sauce and chicken. Also I didn't have the heavy cream and used 1% milk and had to add a teaspoon or so of flour to help thicken the sauce.
Nonetheless, I will definitely make this again and add the wine and heavy cream as the recipe suggests but it wasn't horrible without them either.

Easy to make
