This is elegance on a budget. I sometimes serve this over linguine instead of rice.

Quick and easy enough for a weeknight meal, but elegant and complex enough to be something special.

Used two whole, boneless, skinless chicken breasts to serve two people. Like another reviewer I used a tad too much flour in the sauce, so added some water after the wine. Would have used more wine or chicken stock if I had it on hand, but I didn't, and the water didn't seem to negatively affect the flavour of the finished dish. Nixed the mushrooms all together (husband isn't a fan), but added instead 3 slices of cooked bacon, finely chopped, for depth of flavour. Upped the onion, probably close to double, using one small onion, very finely chopped. My husband isn't a fan of onion either, but he loved this dish and so did I. Will definitely go into our rotation.

Quick easy weeknight meal with great flavor. I had some red potatoes I wanted to serve with this, so I cut the potatoes into wedges and steamed them in the microwave while the chicken and vegetables were browning in the skillet. Then I added the potatoes to the skillet with the chicken for the final cooking step. Wonderful meal.

A delicious, easy meal. I didn't have fresh mushrooms so I used canned. I also added about 1/2 cup of chicken broth to thin out the sauce since I used a little to much flour to thicken it and needed to thin it out a little. We really enjoyed this recipe. Thanks.
