I give this one 6 stars. Thought there would be enough for a second meal. Not so. The gravy was wonderful.
This is a beautiful recipe. I served this over mashed potatoes and the sauce/gravy was a perfect match. I do think that you could halve the sauce amounts and still have enough. I also did not use the full amount of shallots, using about 4 sliced. I wasn't sure when to add the green onions so I threw it into the sauce. I did love the flavor and will definitely make it again with the few minor adjustments. Thank you!!
This was absolutely gorgeous!!! I was so lucky as we are coming into autumn here, all the wild mushrooms are on the shelves, so I made a wild mushroom mix. It was totally omg moreish, both hubby and I loved the sauce. I served over pasnip mash with fresh vegetables. As with some other reviewers, I added garlic too and I also only used 1 large shallot as I was only making for 2. I also cooked in the same pan, browned the chicken, removed and then cooked mushrooms, shallot and garlic, added wine, lemon juice and stock and returned chicken, simmered for 15 Min's, before adding remaining ingredients. A superb recipe and a definite winner and a company worthy dish. Thanks Sharon
