    Lizzie-Babette's Note:

    Rich, creamy Port and mushroom sauce makes these chicken breasts special. A little more work than a weekday meal, but worth it. Great served with plain rice or simply flavored risotto (lemon or parmesan would be nice) to soak up the flavors. Adapted from Silver Palate Cookbook.

      Absolutely wonderful chicken dish I did prepare for a weekday meal. (I had DD soak the mushrooms before I got home, so it took me no longer than any simple, quick meal.) We really enjoyed the combination of wild and button mushrooms, and the port wine and cream added a great flavor to the sauce. The only modification I made was to brown the chicken breasts quickly in olive oil before I added them to the baking dish. I used the same pan that I sauted the mushrooms in, so there was no added mess. Served the chicken with plain, brown rice - very nice combination. If I find a risotto recipe that I can master I will definitely try that, too. Thanks, Beth! We will definitely make this again!

      We have a keeper! The only change I made was to sub. the Port wine, don't have any and I don't like to buy a whole bottle for a first time dish, sooo... I added 1/2 c sugar to a cup Cabernet and reduced it to a simple wine syrup. It was a little too sweet but still did well. If I don't get any Port for the next time I make this I will reduce the sugar to 1/3 c. Hope I don't give anyone the creeps or something by posting this. I sreved it with rice and the sauce was quite good over it.

      If you are a mushrooms lover like me, you MUST try this recipe. It is a fairly easy recipe to put together and the results are outstanding! The combination of fresh mushrooms and dried was a very good mix of textures and taste. I did not have any port so I substituted red grape juice and a little lemon zest. Like the other reviewer, I also quicky browned my chicken breasts in a little olive oil before adding it to the pan. I served it with lemon risotto (Lemon Risotto) and some steamed broccoli. This was a great romantic weekend meal for my BF and I. This woud be a great dish to make to impress your next dinner party!!!
