OMG!!! This is my new favorite chicken recipe, the flavor is SUPERB! I did everything as directed except doubled it. I would suggest if you double the sauce, that you don't double the butter. Not needed, though yummy the sauce was a little greasier than it needed to be. My husband, who has never rated anything from Zaar higher than a 4 (yes, he is VERY picky) rated this a 5. His first 5!! WOO HOO! He also rated the roasted green beans (#133821) I made with it a 5! What a night :o))). Dessert is still in the oven, wonder if it will be a hat trick?

My first recipezaar attempt---a WINNER! Easy to make--I like sauce so I doubled the liquid amounts and used 10% (half&half)cream. I also cut the chicken into chunks--really sped it up. Served w penne and nuked frozen peas and corn. Wife and I licked the plates clean. THX

This is dinner party material. I cooked 4 chicken thighs, doubled the sauce and served it over rice. Delicious. I used fresh thyme from my herb garden, and opted for the 'real' cream. I quite like Cinnamon's idea of cutting up the chicken so every bite is coated in sauce. I will make this again. Thanks for posting!

Delicious! I used one huge chicken breast, cut in half, for the two of us. I didn't halve the sauce though and it was not too much. I made the recipe exactly as stated, except I used chicken stock instead of water. Next time I might cook the chicken over medium heat rather than medium-high and add a splash of oil so the butter doesn't burn quite so much, but that is a small point. I highly recommend this easy and very tasty recipe. Certainly a dish to impress your guests!

I made this for our anniversary dinner, and my husband said it tasted like a dish he would get at a 5 star restaurant. I may try cutting up the chicken before marinading next time, and then stiring it into the sauce at the end. I want every bite to be coated in it!

OH MY!!!! This is one of those rare recipes that the whole family loved. I tripled the recipe since there were 6 of us eating it. I served it over bowtie pasta and it was great. I did thicken the sauce a little but other than that followed exactly.

This truly is absolutely delicious! Everyone loved the sauce (so true about the flavour being "complex"!) We used a half cream sherry/half cooking sherry combination, and used milk instead of the cream. It was still very good, and this recipe is definitely a keeper!

I love this recipe and serve it over rice. It's very easy and even my husband can make it! I changed a few things with the recipe. I used cooking sherry instead of cream sherry and skim milk instead of the heavy cream. I've never made this the original way, but I'm very pleased with the adapted recipe!

Wow! Incredibly easy and soooo elegant. The flavor of the chicken was a taste bud dream. I doubled the recipe as I did 4 chicken breasts and marinaded the chicken for 3 hours. I could have eaten the chicken without the sauce but the sauce was a great addition.
