skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
whole wheat flour
fresh mushrooms, sliced
3 1/2 tablespoons
chopped fresh parsley
Add the port wine LAST, not along with the white wine, or you'll have trouble thickening the sauce.
Very rarely do I rate a recipe a 1-star but my roommate and I took two bites and decided to throw it out. I do not know why it tasted so bad. I believe may be far too much taragon in this dish. Based upon previous reviews the only change I made was to triple the sauce and mushrooms. A similar recipe that I've rated 5-stars is "Chicken Breasts with Balsamic Vinegar and Garlic". I highly recommend this recipe instead.
Fantastic dish that was quick and easy to throw together. I pounded the chicken breasts thin as suggested by several reviewers, doubled the sauce using a medley of different type of mushrooms. Added 1/2 cup of heavy cream to the sauce for a silker, richer sauce. Served it all over linguini pasta.
THIS WAS A WONDERFUL RECIPE GOING TO BE MAKING IT AGAIN AND AGAIN ALTHOUGH I DID DOUBLE THE AMOUNT OF SAUCE MIXTURE SO THAT I COULD TOP WHITE RICE WITH IT
This was scrumptious. The sauce was so good, i had trouble not picking up the plate and licking it like a little kid!I, like many others, doubled the sauce and am thinking of tripling it next time.I thickened it with cornstarch mixed with a tiny bit of water so it wouldnt clump. The chicken was nice and tender, and the mushrooms were great. I used more shallots, about 4 tbs. I didnt use tarragon, i used this herb mix my ma has, Herbs de Provence. DELICIOUS!!! Thank you so much for this delicious and easy meal. (served with mashed potatoes and broccoli)
Really good recipe. I'll make this again. I used several tips in the reviews. I pounded out the chicken, TRIPLED the mushrooms and sauce instead of just doubling, and served it all over the chicken and a side of mashed potatoes. You couldn't get better than this in a restaurant! Thanks, folks!
I did like this recipe, but I did change it some to get the tastes that I preferred. First of all, I think that there needed to be a little more shallots and muschrooms, but that is not a big deal and just a matter of preference. I cut the chicken breasts into quarters before cooking to make the dish a little easier to handle for various appetites. Additionally, I added a little more chicken stock, white wine, and port because I though the recipe did not call for enough of it for a good proportion. The fresh tarragon is a judgement call. I am not a huge tarragon fan, but tried it and of course I got what I expect... a nice tarragon aftertaste, but sometimes I think fresh tarragon takes away from the taste. If other people are not big tarragon fans, i would suggested maybe using a bay leaf or two. The last thing is that I added a little milk to a portion of the sauce to see who it changed my feeling and you can't go wrong with either one. If you prefer creamier sauces, add some milk, otherwise the sauce itself it fine. Thanks for the recipe Carol. I will make it again sometime.
I made this for a business dinner. My guest gobbled it up!! I bought fresh breasts from the butcher (5) and used a whole can of chicken broth. I also used a whole container of sliced mushrooms. I didn't use the parsley. I would use more shallots, maybe 4T instead. Very Good!!! I've made it twice and the wheat flour gives a great taste. I will use wheat for all browning to see what happens. Thanks for the recipe!
