Southern Creamy Mushroom Chicken

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Southern Lady

One of my favorite dishes, compiled from 3 other recipes. The sauce is rich and hearty - perfect for guests or good ole comfort food. Serve on a bed of rice, top with a chicken breast and then spoon the gravy over all. Mushrooms and onion sitting on top make for a nicer presentation.

This just didn't turn out anything like I expected. First off I did use apple juice instead of the wine so that might have had something to do with it, and I used half chicken breast without the bone or skin. I only used 1/3 cup of onion with the garlic and actually only added a little of that to each chicken breast. It just seemed like way to much. All of the soup mixture melted off each of the breast, so I ended up simmering it all together and basting the breast every few minutes. Not much we liked about this one. Was disappointed because it had all the ingredients that we like. Sorry.
