I almost feel bad reviewing after making so many changes, but it was the base I started with and it was GREAT. OK, so I used salt, pepper, minced garlic and thyme in my flour mix for breading the chicken. I quartered my mushrooms because I prefer the aesthetic. For the sauce I used 1/2 c. Chardonnay, 1/2 cup. chicken broth & 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream with a couple tablespoons of cornstarch mixed in to thicken it a bit. It went together quickly and tasted divine, we'll be making this again.
