Rich and tasty. I had this in a restaurant years ago, experimented with it at home until I finally got it right.

This was easy. Personally I did not like the taste at all, although I like all the ingredients.

I really liked this recipe. I made it with evap. milk instead of cream; omitted mushroom and used 1/4 c. low fat marg.; and used 1 tsp. almond extract. My husband on the other hand hated it. After touching his tongue to the chicken he promptly scraped off the cheese wrapped it in foil and threw it away. And I had to give him a separate plate of rice because the sauce had spread to the rice on his plate. So unfortunately I won't be making this again.

It has a very unique taste. Definitely is top 5 in my list. However, anyone who doesnt like amaretto taste should not expect too much.
