  • Incredible!

    This was so very wonderful! I have recently learned that the way to keep dredged meat/poultry from sticking to the pan is to thoroughly (applying pressure) dry the chicken with paper towels. Oh my! It worked perfectly and the chicken browned so beautifully. The flavor balance was perfection. - 3/20/10

  • I made this tonight with chicken thighs and it was marvelous. My husband even rated it as a five. I browned the mushrooms right after I took the chicken out, then added the wine, broth and lemon juice. I let it cook too long so the sauce was reduced a little too much. Still we enjoyed it a lot. - 9/25/13

  • Loved this recipe but I doubled the wine and the broth and added some flour to make a thicker gravy. Served over Angel Hair Pasta. Delicious. - 5/7/13
