I'm not sure how the reviewers who complained of "pink" sauce attained that color (maybe they forgot the chicken broth or maybe they didn't reduce the vinegar???) but mine was exactly the color as in the photo. I used minced red onions instead of shallots (I had a feeling the stronger onion flavor might enhance this dish & I was right) & evaporated milk for heavy cream & I did add 3 cloves of minced garlic plus I used a homemade raspberry vinegar (from this site). I pulled mine off the heat after I added the milk for fear of it curdling like MollysMama's did. I had kept the chicken on warm in the microwave so I didn't need to reheat the chicken...I just mixed the pieces up in the sauce to coat them & then put them on a platter drizzling what little of the sauce there was (next time I am doubling the sauce) on top. I sauteed the breasts whole but after they rested for a few minutes I sliced them into 3 slices each before adding them back to the sauce mixture. I served this w/ Oven Roasted Red Potatoes (from this site)....wish there had been more sauce it was good on the potatoes & Bodacious Broccoli Salad (also from this site). This was a good recipe & I enjoyed the challenge of executing it well...thanks. Read More

This is the first recipe I have made that I give 5-stars all around. I needed something to make with that raspberry vinegar I have. The sauce was so delicious I think I will double the recipe next time. I served it with simple boiled/ browned potatoes and a green salad to not take away from the fancy rich sauce. My husband and kids loved it as much as I did! I had dinner on the table in 30 minutes! Read More

This recipe is one of my top three recipes of all time. The sauce is flavorful and creamy--excellent! I usually make double the sauce and pour over potatoes and vegetables too. Thank you Jill!!! Read More

Made this but instead of vinegar I used raspberry vinaigrette salad dressing and 5% cream instead of heavy cream. It turned out fantastic. Read More

Good base recipe! It just so happens that I was given some Raspberry Vinegar and was looking for something to cook with it! This is quite tasty - family enjoyed it! I browned the chicken and then heated some spring onions and garlic (MUST have garlic!) in the remaining butter/oil - then added the stock & vinegar plus 1tsp cracked pepper 1 tsp salt & 1tsp rosemary and stirred in the cream. I then added the breasts back in and simmered for like 1/2 an hour until the breasts were infused with flavour and the sauce was reduced & thick. Divine! Very good meal with mashed potato & greens (peas or beans). TASTY! Thanks.\ Oh yeah - my sauce was a lovely light brown in colour - no nasty red/pink so dont know what previous person was on about!

I doubled the shallots seasoned the chicken with a little garlic salt rather than adding the salt to the sauce. I increased the amount of liquid and served it over home made pasta. We Love it! Next time I will try it with fat free sour cream instead of heavy whipping cream to cut back on the fat. Read More

Very enjoyable. The flavor is a winner. I'm a little confused by the ingredients list it says 2 skinless boneless chicken breasts but the recipe serves 4. I assume that means it's 2 "whole" breasts or 4 of what I usually find in the store for skinless boneless breasts. I may try to cut the fat by using fat free half and half or evaporated milk next time but 1/3 cup of cream isn't too bad for 4 servings. Read More

This was quick simple and delicious. My husband asked me to keep making it. I make double the sauce as we love it over rice. Make sure that your vinegar is high quality as that is very important to the flavor of dish. Yum. Read More

Even though I had to substitute (bone in) skinless legs and thighs for the bonless skinless chicken breasts in this recipe it was FANTASTIC! I prepared it for my husband and two grown sons and myself and it was a huge hit. Everyone had seconds or thirds and there were no leftovers at all. I have already got to the supermarket and got ingredients (boneless skinless chicken breasts this time!) so I can make it again this coming week. THANK YOU for posting this recipe! Read More
