This chicken recipe is a recent favourite of mine inspired by a popular restaurant dish. The red wine in the sauce adds depth to an otherwise simple ingredient list, making this dish both elegant and tasty. The mushroom sauce tastes amazing spooned over a side of mashed potatoes but I opted to lighten up this meal by serving it with a side salad instead. A few weeks ago, I posted a recipe for the most delicious maple pecans, and this strawberry spinach salad is the most perfect way to use them up!
