      This recipe is absolutely lovely!! I omitted the mushrooms as I don't like them. The chicken came tender and the sauce is really good. Also, leftovers taste great the next day as the chicken has had more time to marinate.

      I love chicken, mushrooms, and wine and this recipe is the perfect example of the reason why. Delicious and plenty of "sauce" to pour over rice. I used 1/8 tsp. dried thyme in place of fresh and it worked wonderfully. Thank you Ms. Pia.

      I used 3 maryland (what we call when leg and thigh are left intact) which had a weight of just over 2 1/2 lb so I kept to the full recipe though I had a :oops: moment when distracted and ended up cooking up the chicken and put to one side and then drained pan and put the wine and broth into the pan and realized :oops: so took than out and put some of the fat back and cooked off the mushrooms and eschallots I used in place of baby onions (also sliced my mushrooms ar they were on the large side), put that all onto a plate and then added a little more of the fat and then cooked of the flour and proceded with the recipe, my Marylands took 30 minutes to cook which I had allowed for as I thought 15 minutes would not be enough. Thank you MsPia, made for Please Review My Recipe.
