Although this is somewhat rich, we felt it needed more flavor - perhaps increasing spices/herbs, etc - as it was quite bland inspite of all the good ingredients. Perhaps my mushrooms gave up too much moisture, as after 10 minutes reduction, the sauce had not thickened. I loved the mushroom/chicken texture combination.
