Chicken Scallopini With Mushroom Sauce

"I don't remember where I found this recipe, it has been in my recipe box for about 25 years now. It is wonderful for a special occasion dinner, but can also be made up fairly quickly on a weeknight. You can buy sliced mushrooms to use in this to speed it up a bit. This is going to be the main course for my Valentine's Day Dinner this year. I use chicken broth from a 1 litre carton if I don't have any homemade frozen. While it definitely is not diet food you can lighten it up a bit by using half & half instead of heavy cream, but the sauce will be a bit thinner then. While this takes a bit more work than just cooking some chicken breasts it is well worth the effort. You can serve this with pasta or risotto, and some whole green beans with baby carrots."

Chef #8832636. My memebership on this site goes back to the days of recipezaar, so I have seen a lot of changes on the site over the years. I still miss the forums, they had a wealth of information in them, and it was great to be able to connect with other chefs through them. I don't think zmail exists anymore either, so I don't think we have any way of contacting other chefs now. I haven't been on the site much in the last few years, mainly because of the changes. I do still pop in to look for specific recipes. I enjoy cooking, and am passionate about baking.
