Chicken with Shiitake Mushroom Sauce

 
Chicken with Shiitake Mushroom Sauce

This recipe would have been 5 stars without the sliced sun-dried tomatoes. The tomatoes dominated the flavor of the sauce so much that it didn't allow the mushrooms to shine through. My wife liked it, but I noticed she was picking out the tomatoes too.
