skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
all-purpose flour for dusting
ground black pepper
2 1/2 cups
fresh sliced mushrooms
This recipe can be great, with a few modifications. After I pounded the chicken breasts I breaded them is self rising flour heavily seasoned. I seasoned the flour with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. I browned the chicken breasts in olive oil and butter, to give them a really nice golden brown coating. Then I removed the chicken breasts, and deglazed the pan with the champagne. I used more champagne than was called for, (more sauce) and added some minced garlic and dried onions when I added the chicken back to the pan. I then added the mushrooms (the more the better), and simmered them for 20 mins. When I added the cream I did not measure, I just added as much as it took to thicken the sauce. I imagine it was about 2 cups like the recipe suggested. I served this with mashed potatoes and broccoli, however I think it would be great with rice cooked in chicken broth. A very yummy recipe, but more champagne and more seasoning is necessary. Also the self rising flour makes a great coating.
Good but definitely bland. I added A LOT of garlic salt and parmesan cheese to give it some flavor. Chicken tender. Overall OK.
We loved this! Of course I just couldn't use the 2 cups of heavy cream(dieting), so I modified the sauce by using one can of Campbell's 98% fat free cream of chicken soup, 1/2 cup ff sour cream and 1/2 cup of skim milk. It made a terrific sauce and my husband is still patting his stomach!!
I have been making this recipe for nearly ten years now. I make it almost identical to this recipe. I use 1 tablespoon of oil and 1 tablespoon of real butter. I also find that flattening the breasts before breading helps with the cooking time. For this, I just use the palm of my hand.
I would recommend browing 3-4 min per side before adding the champagne. Add the champagne, bring to a boil and then reduce to simmer. Simmer for 20 minutes so the chicken does not get overcooked.
Flouring the breasts lightly is key to getting a sauce that has a nice consisentcy. If you find your sauce is not at a desired thickness, carefully mix a tsp of flour with some sauce in a seperate cup and then add to the mixture.
I don't use mushrooms in my sauce, but that is only because my DH doesn't care for them. This is fantastic served over rice (boiled in chicken broth). It has been a favorite of mine for a long time.
I made this for our anniversary dinner. Used the dry champagne, and it was great. I will definitely be making this again. I did double the sauce ingredients because we prefer more sauce. Excellent! Thanks, Barbara!
Enjoyed this for a weeknight dinner! Took others' advice and pounded chicken, seasoned the flour, deglazed the pan w/ the champagne and added fresh garlic with the mushrooms. I can say that after 20 minutes of "almost boiling," my champagne was gone, so I will try covering next time. Very good over rice. Will definitely try again. The chicken was very tender. Oh, I also added butter to my olive oil to help with browning.
This was good but I definitely took suggestions. I would recommend 1 cup of whipping cream instead of 2, not breading the chicken, using extra mushrooms, and adding garlic & other spices. It would've been to bland without it; however, excellant dish that the boyfriend loved.
Made this last night and found this recipe to be very good. I took under consideration other people's reviews which mentioned the recipe was a little bland and doesn't "pop tastebuds". I cooked everything the way it was specified, but at the end I left the heavy cream to cook for about 8-9 minutes in a 13" skillett (almost boiling the whole time) so that the cream would get a little heavier. I did a taste test half way through and decided to add about 1/3 cup champagne to the cream to make sure it wasn't too bland. The sauce consistency came out "just right". The taste was creamy with a hint of a sour (Champagne) undertone. Overall I was satisfied with this meal and Bu thought it was good as well - will make it again.
