Sensual Chicken With Champagne

"I came up with this recipe because I made Sharon 123's recipe for Recipe #144056 and thought it would enhance this dish nicely. Of course you can use olive oil. I was going for a chicken paprikash dish without the fat of sour cream and add lots of veggies like carrots, mushrooms and onions. Makes it a light dish for Valentines Day--saves room to share a sensual dessert for two!"

    I used smoked paprika. I put crumbled feta on top of the finished dish. Really, really good!

    Lovely dinner! I omitted the carrots because I didn't have any and used smoked paprika. for the mushrooms I used a combination of chantrelles, baby bella and button mushrooms and I added some minced shallot with the onion. Instead of mincing the garlic I used shaved slices. So very good!! Served it over rice, but I think mashed potatoes would be even better. Made for Las Mistico Magicos Sirenas ZWT - 5.

    Definitely enjoyed this dish! The flavors just all came together so nicely! We are not mushroom fans so I left that out but otherwise, followed the recipe exactly! Thanks for sharing! Made for Ali Baba Babes for ZWT5.

    WOW, wow, wow! Rita, what a LOVELY recipe - I so enjoyed this, and it was even sensual to cook too, mainly due the odd slurp of champagne!! I cut my carrots into julienne strips and used local Morel mushrooms, I LOVE them! I used smoked paprika, pimenton, for a little kick and fresh thyme, majoram and parsley for the mix of herbs - also as a garnish too. I cut this recipe back to 1/4, as I am by myself at the moment.......I used one large chicken breast, pounded and cut into three pieces. There was no need for any other accompaniments, as I enjoyed this by itself with all the pan-fried veggies. Poetic food and a keeper. Made for the Whine and Cheese Gang for ZWT5 and France. Merci ma leeetle Petits Pois! FT:-)

    I really loved this dish. I chose to use Hungarian Hot Paprika and it was too hot for the guys. I thought the Hot complemented the dish very well but next time I will use half sweet and half hot so that DH2B doesn't burn his tongue. Our breasts were fatties and even though they were gently pounded, I did need to cook them longer at the end which may account for not having as much sauce as in your beautiful photos. I love this chicken and love the fact that it has less calories from most Champagne Chicken recipes. I hardly missed the cream!
