    Carrie Ann's Note:

    This recipe,taken from a local art gallery cook book, is one I've been making for special occasions for over 20 years.The consomme really is the integral ingredient in this dish, but if you don't care for it, chicken broth can be substituted, but with less impressive results.When I make these for a dinner party, I stuff the "birds" in the morning and then keep all the ingredients for the sauce pre-measured and ready to go. This cuts down the amound of running around in the kitchen, and leaves more time for the guests.

      What a wonderfully savoury dish! The chicken holds together beautifully when tied and got nicely browned on the outside while being moist and tender on the inside of the roll. I loved the flavor that the sherry imparted on the filling. I used a dry sherry and liked the taste, but might try a cream sherry next time for a bit better balance with the mushrooms and ham. (I think I'm looking for a hint of sweetness.) I used baby bella mushrooms and the filling was rich, earthy and full of deep flavor. I assembled the chicken about 10 hours before I cooked it and think that the time in the fridge helped the flavors in the filling combine. This is a very good recipe and I think it will be well loved in my kitchen for years to come.
