      This recipe is wonderful!!! I made ours with chicken breasts rather than buying a whole chook and cutting it into pieces as I was only making for 3. The sauce is superb it has such a delicate flavour that is so good and definitely moreish. I loved all the flavours that came through from the veg and herbs imparted into the milk to lovely taste of the liquid from the mushrooms, chicken, garlic and sherry. This is a very easy recipe to make with such wonderful end results. I obviously cooked less than one hour as I was using breasts but made the rest the same. An excellent meal whether just for family or company that will have guest coming back for more. Great Post we will enjoy this one often.
