Chicken Steak with Creamy Mushroom Sauce & Steamed Veggies

Cooking with friends is always fun…… I cooked this at my friends’ house and they loved it. This is my very own recipe of chicken steak with mushroom sauce, I make mushroom sauce differently, people make it with chicken stock and cream, I make it richer in flavor by using Parmesan cheese and cream, more like Alfredo mushroom sauce. The best thing about this plate (in the picture) is it is full of flavors, nothing on this plate is bland, everything is seasoned well to perfection and has its own unique flavour. Give it a try and I am sure you will fall in love with this rich, flavoursome delicacy!
