This is a great basic recipe though I improvised it a bit. I used boneless chicken thighs per my husband's preference and just make sure to cook them on the longer end of the 8-10 minute range. Also I had two pieces of leftover turkey bacon that was already cooked so I chopped it up and added it at the end. It went well with the other ingredients and rice & spinach I served with the chicken. Next time I will try cooking diced turkey bacon in the pan first, using the fat in place of olive oil to cook the chicken.
WOW! This was a really great recipe! Thank you! I was worried that my 4 and 6 year old wouldn't eat it but they went for seconds. I followed the recipe exactly. I used Chardonnay and an Amish Swiss cheese. I also used an organic heavy cream and thought it would be too much but it was just perfect. I can't wait to make it again! I didn't put the green onions on top in fear my kids would say "yuck" and not eat but the shallots were perfect and it didn't even need the scallions.
