This dish was really delicious and we loved the sauce with the mushrooms. I used leg/thigh portions and the only change I made was to use fresh wine vs. the marinade. Served this dish with some potatoes and a salad. Liked the idea from one of the other reviewers to serve it with rice - will try that next time. Made for the 1-2-3 Tag Game, July 2012.

This was very good. I had one huge boneless skinless chicken breast, and so I halved the other ingredients. The sauce was wonderful. Loved the addition of the egg yolk to thicken it up. I wanted to savor the sauce, so served mine over rice. Next time I may cut the chicken up in bite size pieces so each piece is covered in the delicious mushroom sauce. Thanks for sharing!

...Cannot believe I forgot to review this amazing chicken!! Made as written using a combo of white and baby bella mushrooms. The sauce was fantastic; creamy a little salty and went great with the chicken. I served mine with steamed rice and a salad. Will be making this again!! Made for Zaar Stars.
