Would have given 10 stars if I could. Quick and delish!. I used 2 boneless breast halves and pounded them thin. Cooked the mushrooms a little longer so they soaked up a lot of the butter, added 2 more tablespoons with the chicken, cooked until browned and crispy, follow the rest of the recipe,. A definite keeper. The lemon added just the right zip to the sauce. Served with egg noodles.

I grew up with this dish...in New Orleans it's called Chicken Fricasse and served over rice! Mondays were always Red Beans and Rice. Can't remember what day chicken Fricasse was but it was a great meal.

can you substitute broth for the wine?

you could, but it could also change the taste.
