    Chef #1443475's Note:

    There's not a Cheesecake Factory where I live so everytime I visit a city that has one I get the same thing, Madiera Chicken. So I decided to try to make it. After researching many recipes I've formulated one that you'll love. Asapargus are great but can be sometimes difficult to cook, I've got a great recipe for some that doesn't go with this dish so I opted for Fresh Green Beans.

In a seperate bowl take the remaining 1/4 of beef stock, 1/4 of madiera and 1 tbs of corn starch and sitr (liquid should be no warmer than room temperture) until smooth.
