Fail. No mention of the onion in step one and then step two says “add onion and cream mixture”. Are to sauté the onion first and add the cream? Throw them in raw? Proofreader sleeping on the job.

Super easy and quick-many times when mustard is an ingredient you can barely taste it-made exact to recipe and I really enjoyed

I followed recipe with the exception of adding some minced garlic and a dash of Worcestershire, doubling the sauce as the writer recommended because I like sauciness. Very quick and easy to put together. Delicious!

I was looking for that "something different" chicken recipe. Found it! I didn't have cream on hand so used milk and sour cream instead. Took others advice and made extra sauce. Excellent results!

This recipe was easy enough to make but I did think it needed just a bit more flavor - so we added some minced garlic. I should have doubled the sauce! Very quick and tasty!

Delicious! I followed the recipe exactly as written except I used more onion. There was plenty of sauce, but will double the amount next time.
