  1. This was dish was okay, but nothing special and I was asked not to make it again. I ended up adding more chicken stock because I thought that the sauce thickened up too much but that was the only change that I made. I served the chicken with rice, roasted carrots, and a salad.
  2. This was a really nice. easy to make chicken dish. I cooked the chicken and then removed it from the pan to keep warm. I wanted to use the same pan to pick up some of the brown bits from the chicken when making the sauce. I had to add a little more chicken broth because I wanted a little more sauce. I served this with recipe #362935 and recipe #253823. Great dinner. Made for ZWT5
  3. *Made for Australia/NZ Swap #28* Fixed 1/2 recipe with 2 chicken breasts for DH and me. You did not list butter in ingredients, so I used about 2 TBsp and a little olive oil. Also, just removed the chicken in Step 4, and used the same pan for the shallots and sauce ingredients. It was tasty but not extraordinary -- made with mashed potatoes and marinated green veggie salad. Thanks for posting, daisygrl64.
