I know it really annoys some people when reviewers change the recipe around, but part of cooking is altering recipes to your tastes and what you have on hand. I always read the reviews to see what changes people may have made to improve the recipe. That being said, I was afraid this recipe would be too salty and acidic so I did change it. I used white wine, left out the olives and bacon, used 2 tablespoons yellow mustard, and half balsamic vinegar/half rice wine vinegar because rice wine vinegar is milder. I also used 1/2 pound fresh mushrooms and it turns out my packet of chicken gravy mix was half the size the recipe required. I'm glad I made the changes because while I didn't think it was too strongly flavored, my boyfriend did and I'm sure he would have hated it if I'd use the regular ingredients. It was pretty tart and acidic anyway, but I like that. I will make this again using the right amount of chicken gravy mix and whole chicken breasts!
