Ok. I really enjoyed this dish. It was simple to prepare, light and flavorful. I would use white wine instead of red, the next time I prepare it. I didn't like the "purple" hue of the chicken. It was a bit watery and I had to add a little flour to help it along. It has a heavy Thyme flavor, so if you don't love Thyme, reduce the recipe to 1/2 tablespoon.

Easy and enjoyable. I used fresh sage instead of dried thyme, and sauteed the sage with the mushrooms. Next time I might use more red wine (or perhaps port wine) to give the sauce a stronger flavor.

This was delicious -- probably one of the best recipes I've made thanks to Allrecipes! I used more mushrooms than the recipe called for (a whole large container of sliced mushrooms). I also used a little flour to thicken the sauce, as other reviewers suggested; that worked perfectly. I also used white cooking wine instead of red, and I served the dish over egg noodles and with a green veggie side -- yummy!!!

Followed the recipe exactly with the exception of adding some fresh minced garlic. Overall, we enjoyed this meal greatly. Very gourmet "comfort food" if that makes sense. Placed the chicken atop garlic mashed potatoes and ladled the sauce over everything. Nice presentation. My husband said it was one of his all-time favorite chicken recipes (and he hates chicken). Next time, I would like to add a bit more flavor to the chicken while it is cooking.

I took the advice of other users and used white wine and some garlic. It worked, even though I used whole milk instead of heavy cream. I thickened it with flour, as someone else suggested. It was delicious!

First time cooking with grapes! I used half-&-half instead of heavy cream. I added oregano, basil and a dash of curry powder! I don't think the grapes added much flavor but this recipe was interesting to make!

The flavors melded pretty well, but it's also pretty rich. My husband thought it was great!

This is incredibly rich. Almost too delicious! The purple color didn't bother me at all. Makes it seem more gourmet, lol. I might tone down the cream and butter next time for reasons others have also mentioned. But in any case, you gotta try this one. If you're a novice like me, it will take more than 30 min, but totally worth it.
