Creamy Mushroom Chicken

I would like to draw your attention to several thing in the recipe. You could notice that I add salt only at the end of the recipe. When you add salt to sautéing mushrooms or chicken while it is still uncooked, it provokes these ingredients to lose the inside juice (to me it makes the dish not so tasty). All your comments leave in the section below. If you have any ideas on how to make this dish better, share them with us.
