Even though this Chicken Mushroom Julienne sounds like a French dish, the truth is that we make it in Ukraine more than they do in France. Every family in Ukraine knows this wonderful dish and makes it very often. In fact, it is one of the most popular dishes and you can often order it in Ukrainian restaurants. 🙂
I am not going to tell you who invented this Chicken and Mushroom Julienne, because I don’t know. Instead, I will tell you how tasty this dish is, because I DO KNOW that. It is SCRUMPTIOUS! I love the combination of flavorful mushrooms, chicken, creamy sauce and melted cheese. All the flavors work really well and it is impossible to stop eating.
My mom makes this Chicken and Mushroom Julienne with cream, but I am using 2% milk instead in order to save a few calories. Of course, the dish tastes creamier if you use Half-and-Half, but the difference in taste is subtle. I am going to leave this decision up to you, friends.
Traditionally, this dish is served as an appetizer, although I found it can serve as a filling dinner on its own or it could be served with a side dish like mashed potatoes, boiled rice or fresh salad.
