    Add the chicken broth and continue cooking until it boils, then reduce the heat. Add a little hot broth to the slurry and mix it well to avoid lumps. Pour the slurry mixture into the broth & mushrooms, stirring constantly. Continue cooking until the sauce bubbles & thickens.

    Add the heavy cream and stir to combine. Stir in the cooking sherry and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper to taste, continue to simmer for 5 mins., stirring occasionally to avoid sticking to the pan.
