    SmHerndon's Note:

    This is too good to pass up! A 5-Star, I promise. It's easy and presents beautifully over my Instant Gnocchi (#113377) or a toasted baguette. A BH&G recipe.

      Found this recipe to be bland and quite greasy. Even though I cut off as much fat from the chicken as possible, it was very greasy as the fat came out in the simmering. In the reducing process at the end when the chicken was removed, the water was boiled off leaving the grease. Might be better with skinless breast fillets (less fat)???

      A nice light recipe and very easy to prepare! I used all chicken breasts, white mushrooms and a little corn starch to thicken the sauce a bit.
