1.Chop mushrooms, shallots and garlic all the same size

2.In a frying pan, warm some oil and sauté mushrooms, shallots and garlic

3.Once you smell the garlic, add your chicken and white wine

4.Cover and simmer until 90% of the liquid is gone

5.Remove from heat, remove chicken breast and cool

6.Once cooled, roughly chop all ingredients together

7.Add cream cheese into mix and blend
