I am not a cook...far from it. But recently I've been "trying" recipes I've found online. This was the first one that I tried...and what a success! Not only was it fairly simple, I surprised my guest with how tasty this is (and how it looked like I knew what I was doing!). I am not much of a mushroom eater, but I definitely ate all! I doubled all the ingredients and ended up adding a little more cream and it was great. Thanks for posting!
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.

So, I tried this tonight and my husband and I really enjoyed it and we agreed that this was definitely a keeper! I like sauces so I added cornstarch to it to thicken it up so that it wasn't so thin. I didn't have Shitake mushrooms, so I used Creminis instead and I used turkey cutlets because I didn't have chicken breasts.
I didn't follow the recipe exactly, but I did use it as a base for what I ended up serving. Regardless, this was delicious and I would definitely make this again.
this recipe is a very easy way to jazz up plain chicken breast. a tasty and nuanced sauce in 10 min. i substituted fresh sage for the chives, since that's what i had in my fridge, and it was delicious. also used sour cream instead of heavy (also bc that was in my fridge), and worked great.
I made this for the first time about 6 months ago. It seems that since then I end up making it about once a month. My husband makes a specific request for this dish. I love it and he loves it, so what more could you ask for! The sauce is even so good that the last time I made it the chicken had gone bad, but I had already cut up everything to make it, so I just cooked up some pasta and made the sauce exactly as written for it. It came out awesome. So this recipe is definitely versatile.
Really easy recipe that didn't need a whole lot of crazy ingredients. Next time I would double the ingredients needed for the sauce. I cooked some spaghetti noodles and tossed them with the dish and the small amount of sauce got soaked right up.
Only had baby bella mushrooms, so I used those instead of the others. Still worked.
