Menu Description: "Our most popular chicken dish! Sauteed chicken breast topped with fresh asparagus and melted mozzarella cheese, covered with fresh mushroom madeira sauce. Served with mashed potatoes."

What makes this Cheesecake Factory's "most popular chicken dish" is the sweet madeira wine reduction sauce spooned over the top. Man, I could slurp that stuff straight from a glass. It's that good. And—get this—it's easy. Even though the real stuff appears to include veal stock, we can concoct a great knockoff using canned beef stock. Get sliced mozzarella cheese from your deli section and be sure to pound the chicken breasts very thin using plastic wrap to cover each one before you get medieval on it. Also, in typical Cheesecake Factory style, their entree is huge, including two chicken fillets and a giant pile of mashed potatoes on the side. This recipe makes a total of four chicken fillets, which divides into two servings if you're at the restaurant. At home though, this is probably the perfect amount for a tribe of four.

Everyone loved it! I did add some wondra (fine flour for gravies) to thicken the gravy.

I've never had this dish at the restaurant, but when looking through Todd's cookbook for something to make for dinner, decided to try it since it's claimed to be the most popular dish. I usually don't like cooking with booze, but I went for it, and was very pleased! I wouldn't say the sauce "thickened", but I did bubble/simmer it slowly until it reduced to the recommended quarter of original volume, and the mushrooms and sauce were soooo good!
