Aussie Swap 72: This is a delicious chicken dish - I love that I had almost all the ingredients, minus the fresh shrooms, in my pantry - it was delicious!
This is a delicious chicken dish! Easy to prepare and tons of flavor. I did use white wine instead of vermouth as you suggested in the intro. I had some leftover grilled chicken breast so used that instead of sauteing the chicken. Served over a slab of toasted whole-grain bread and really enjoyed - thanks for sharing the recipe!
