    sofie-a-toast's Note:

    I got this recipe from my roommate who had grown up with it. I try not to eat much meat but the sauce alone over rice or pasta is to die for. It is such a great mixture of savory, earthy, salty and a tiny bit sweet.

      I followed this pretty much as written except that I added four cloves of grated garlic into the mushroom mixture just before I added mushroom mixture into the chicken broth,cream mixture. I didn't let the garlic cook for long, maybe 30 seconds, because I didn want it to get brown and bitter. I found that the sauce was very thin so I thickened it up ever so slightly with about a tablespoon of cornstarch slurry. Also, I felt that it needed a lot more fresh sage than called for but that's my personal preference. I ended up using about four tablespoons of freshly minced sage leaves and then in the last step where you add the lemon juice I ended up adding some dried sage because I had run out of the fresh sage and I felt it needed more flavor.. Served it with wild rice and fresh baby spinach. Highly recommend this chicken dish.

      First of all, I can't tell you how divine this smells while it's cooking. It's enough to make your mouth start watering. I used a mixture of cremini and white mushrooms, which worked out wonderfully. All the seasonings are spot-on, and I wouldn't change a thing. Thanks for sharing this gem!

      Delicious! At first we thought only 4 stars but the more we ate it the more we liked it, and it was great the next day. I thought it was weird that there was no garlic and the garlicky baked fontina dish we had with it gave it a boost, so I would add some the next time I make it.
