Recipe by MarthaStewartWanabe

This is one of my husband's favorite meals. The chicken is flavorful and moist with a lovely mushroom sauce. I have served it over rice or alongside mashed or roasted potatoes.

Very delicious! I made only one serving of this recipe (for me) and it was so easy and the directions were easy to follow. I did have problems producing the sauce so I had to add extra chicken stock. (I think my heat was too high) however overall, this was very yummy. Thank you MarthaStewartWanabe
