I really enjoy this recipe! Its a great twist on traditional chicken with rice dishes that my family likes. I tried it the first time as-is (I usually try a recipe first to give the author the benefit if the doubt). Our family tries to eat pretty healthy so for us the original recipe was too salty, and buttery for our tastes. But other than that I love the idea of making your own cream sauce rather than using Cream of Mushroom and the hot sauce adds an extra kick that is different than Paprika, which I usually use.
The second time I made the following substitution/ omissions and it turned out great and is a lot healthier for my kiddos:
1. Omitted butter and used just a little olive oil to cook the chicken, sprinkled with italian seasoning & paprika for more flavor.
2. Substituted whole milk for Cream = Less calories/ cholesterol, etc
3. Omitted salt
4. Saute mushrooms in the same pan as chicken, using the oil already in the pan instead of adding more butter. Substituted Sweet red wine for Sherry.
5. I cooked a Quinoa & Wild Rice blend and layered the chicken, mushrooms & sauce on top to soak up all the yummy flavor instead of cooking them separate.
