I'm not sure where to begin. It was quick, easy, the taste was decent, no one complained (we were very hungry and I got a late start figuring out what to make for dinner).... but it just wasn't that nice to look at. I made the recipe as listed because I needed something NOW... usually I look at the reviews and take recommendations from the other cooks if they sound like what my family would enjoy more so than just blindly following the recipe when I know in fact something simply won't work for us. In this case, I needed more flour, as well as more oil and butter. The chicken cooked up fine, but when I added it to the reduced sauce, the flour coating came almost completely off... so while the flour thickened the sauce as expected, the chicken underneath just wasn't that pretty....and I thought it was rather unappetizing to look at. I WILL say that the chicken was nice and tender.... like the texture was VERY nice and the flavors of the spices/garlic/shallot/wine were perfect for my family, the sauce though... I would probably set to the side and whisk it smoother, and then either re-combine with the chicken or just leave it on the side completely. Truthfully, I really would give this another shot, but insure I was not rushed so I could really pay attention to tweaks I could make to have it present better. It is a good start, though! I would say 3 1/2 stars.
